class description
In this class we work on movement material, using the spiral as a basic principal of organic movement; to achieve comprehension of the physical movement on various levels (especially on the floor) and the spacial connections, as well as the motor of the movement and nuances or textures of movement. We use principles of locomotion in positions on hands and feet and rolling motion advancing in space, evolving little by little towards a more complex movement language (transitions on hands, elbows, head and shoulders, generating suspensions of the body).
The movement material challenges coordination and agility by consciously using the space, the muscle tonus and the understanding of the body weight in connection with gravity.
