The goal of this workshop is to encourage specificity within movement focussing on generating dance material from our animal instincts and our own creativity.
We will work on efficiency of movement and gravity; bringing awareness to inner sensations such as breathing and the visualization of energy released by movement in order to develop a consciousness around the body & mind and understand how physical structure relates to spatial energies, to others and one self.
In this sense the body becomes a tool of projection for the physical and emotional flow. The force of mental images such as lines and structures around and in the body are used to define and help us to understand the body’s functionality better.
Roberto Olivan is the Artistic director of the festival Deltebre Dansa, Catalan choreographer and Director of ROBERTO OLIVAN PERFORMING ARTS. He lives and works internationally binding together all those seemingly opposing influences from each country and culture he steps in, using a mix of artistic languages to create primeval, organic physical theatre full of wonderful contradictions. It is rooted firmly in his own origins and experience, and colored by those of the performers with whom he creates.
