PREPARATION FOR PERFORMANCE: SPIRALS & HELIX with Irene Dowd
The body’s anatomical potential for movement is enormous – far more expansive than the movement vocabulary one is habitually using. Practicing the material being offered in this workshop will help you to go beyond the familiar and enrich your choreographic resources by considering this full anatomical potential.
We will discuss some of the choreographic, anatomical, and neuroscience bases for these choreographies, but we will primarily spend our time together learning and practicing the choreography itself. I find that we often answer our own questions, pertaining to what, why, how, when, who and where, by repeatedly physically DOING while gradually finding the ways in which we can personally enter into the choreography in a functional and sensitive/sensual way.
This workshop is designed for intermediate/advanced students of dance and dance professional.
