”Riding the Curve” – Workshop med Luke Jessop

This workshop builds on the principles of Riding The Curve, allowing gravity to do a lot of the work within creative acrobatics. Alongside solo movement work, we will also work with a partner to explore how such qualities as momentum, risk, weight and aesthetic can allow us to create physically and visually interesting images and tools with each other. We aim to highlight the moments that are not possible without a partner yet constructing an awareness of each person’s role within any given movement. Drawing on experience of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Forro, we will understand how we can both cooperate and compete, using games and exercises to highlight the tools we need to develop when working with a partner.

OBS! Föranmälan Note! Pre-registration required

The workshop is open for members of Danscentrum (all four regions in Sweden) and for dancers within the street dance field. Register via e-mail to: info[at]danscentrumvast.se
