International Dance Artist Sarah Cerneaux facilitated a 1 Day Dance Lab in February
It was a fantastic day for all who attended-Thank you to Sarah for such a great workshop!
Title : Moving Through Instinct
It’s about playing with a multitude of dynamics, qualities and energy and exploring all our possibilities.
By pushing the contrasts and looking for the oppositions inside and around us, let’s discover a new way of moving / expressing ourselves in order to change the vision that everyone has of their own dance.
The aim is to let our natural presence emerge in physical restraint and push our limits.
How can we use all the knowledge we have stored and at the same time keep challenging them in order to let emerge the singular performer we are.
It is through rhythm games, improvisation and physical tasks we will reconnect with our instinct so that each person may find their own way to apprehend the movement.
Instinct and intuition will allow us to dive into our creativity.
Sarah suggests therefore in her classes to share her experience built through the companies she worked with, as well as her own artistic vision.
