About his workshop
The workshop is based on an intimate research of awareness.
We are developing our senses to communicate, first with ourselves, connected to our own sensations, then we open a dialogue with the others. Space and time as a playground.
Awakening our instinct with the aim of reaching a specific point of high consciousness and strong physicality.
We explore movement qualities through different improvisation tasks, related to emotional changes and a deep listening of our own groove.
We play a constant game of images change, and through a musicality, to experience the potential of our mind connected to our body.
