A mix of floor work and experimental work, which are based on physical exercise, and how to organize our body to move through the space. The class will make our body and brain work hard. We will discover our strength, weakness and freedom. Our tasks for a few days will be short exercises to explore what we can do on the floor and with the floor. I will take you on a journey from shorts tasks, through improvisation, to choreography. As well we will work on your coordination through different tasks. The class will be based on the floor work which I learned and explored in Europe to develop my own methods and want to share with you.
