Embodying Critical Situation

This intensive is about identifying our way of expressing into certain situations like a moment of confrontation, dealing, accepting and mainly reacting to situation like at current times which made many people understand life in different perspectives physically and emotionally. As a process we work with our bodies in order to invent a score to create a situation and let the body react and mind follows and other way around. Identifying the space filled with accumulated information, giving preference to choices and the reaction to it. action and reaction will be considered as movement practice with the influence of movement disciplines. 

A 5-day Intensive workshop focused on Improvisation working on fundamentals like breath, speed and energy, involving the core structure of the body influenced by different methods of dance and martial arts combined, exploring dancers' relationship with the space and the people around. during this process we experience reaction through various tasks and scores, to disengage mind from body and observing the reaction of body, recollecting or replaying the incident and to identify it with a new perspective, the new is nothing but a combination of various memories played in different time and space which is changing and passing every moment. Bringing feeling and letting the body occupy and transfer, letting it pass in order to give space for the next incident. Running from incident to incident, going through different emotional states, identifying the presence and absence, and identifying the state of mind and body through these different emotional states.
