Instructors: Wagner Moreira and Helena Fernandino
Again and again we are amazed at how infinite the possibilities are to teach, to create and above all, to learn.
The workshop approaches ways of moving using a focus on efficiency rather than a focus shapes. Elements such as strength, flexibility, restriction, limitation, abilities and supplementation enable the participants to create freedom, stability, difference, diversity and natural acceptance. Based on exploration, improvisation and technique, participants will be offered simple patterns of movement that will be developed into different combinations. The focus will be on an economic (i.e. efficient) process in regards to the function of movement development, while participants explore the connectivity and qualities from different body systems.
Through guided explorations, classes will flow from floor work through standing combinations and the connection between levels of space. Based on our own experiences as a dancers and choreographers, the second part of the workshop will utilize improvisational games and tasks to compose material and create scores, providing a matrix for stage piece or site-specific work. C.O.R.E. (Creating Opportunities of Research & Exploration) has gained a new dimension through several experiences in recent years, opening up new visions that follow new impulses.
