The workshop will be divided in morning technical training and afternoon laboratory.

Technical training (morning)

Technical training will focus on the development and practice of: combinations, sequences (some very physical & acrobatic, others more detailed and subtle movements) & tools to move through space on various levels of height (from floor­work to jumps and their transitions, as well as rhythm and texture).

Laboratory (afternoon)

The laboratory will focus on studying the patterns by which we move and relate to other people.

Chapters will be diverse and not linear:
Independent work on developing personal movement and presence
Use of rhythmical constructions to deconstruct installed behaviors, projections and predictability, intimacy and exposure, instantaneous compositions, etc.
The approach to these subjects is built through playfulness and fully involved physicality and concentration.
