About Juan Jesus Masterclass

In MOVIMIENTO CONSTANTE, we have started a quest. Our movement practices link several dance techniques and languages. We are driven not only by the wish to share this, but also by our interest in the peculiarities of movement within various cultures – the traces of identity that can be seen through each person and their way of conceiving the world and the body.

These quests have taken us to many cities and provinces within Argentina and also many countries of the world (Chile, Bolivia, Uruguay, Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, Spain, France, Ireland, Austria) and the UK.

We think it is fundamental for us movement researchers to keep questioning and expanding our experiences in order to share and take part in processes.

This workshop aims to approach both the concepts of space and time related to movement and the possibilities that emerge when they are combined with our own body language.

Our body’s possibilities are endless.
