Workshop Description-Flying Low and Passing Through

Flying Low’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 both these approaches.  The workshop builds up from gentle exercises which examine the natural spiral patterns within the body and develops into more energetic and expansive sequences.

Groundedness, efficiency of movement, practicality, open awareness and group dynamics are important elements at play in this movement training. This is an energetic workshop exploring the mechanics of the body, group consciousness and decision making.
