Maiden Voyage is delighted to present a Flying Low and Passing Through Masterclass with dance artist, choreographer and teacher Lucia Kickham.
Flying Low is a dance technique developed by Venezuelan dance artist David Zambrano. It’s main focus is the dancer’s relationship with the floor. Passing Through is a complex system of spontaneous composition based on collective leadership, interconnection and infinite possible pathways in space.
In this workshop Lucia will introduce the participants to the key elements of these movement approaches. The workshop will build up from gentle exercises and develop into more energetic and expansive sequences. In Flying Low examining the natural spiral patterns within the body and Passing Through exploring use of space and connection to others.
Groundedness, efficiency of movement, practicality, open awareness and group dynamics are important elements at play in this movement training
