Four morning sessions to train our body and expression, and to dive into the power of intention!
What is the intention behind a shared movement or composition? Where does it come from: a thought, a sensation, an idea? What do I want to share with the public, what part of my inner world ? What do I perceive when I witness a movement or composition from somebody else ? Can I connect to words, observations or images to share what I perceive?
In a first part of every session we will throw ourselves into an exploration of the body in motion. We will discover and/or revisit the connotations that inhabit our consciousness of our moving body and its parts. We open up our gaze, outward and inward. We dance our way into a highly awake and receptive body and mind: loose, sustained, carefree, disarmed, breathed, with internal spaces that ensure a conscious and healthy dance.
The second part of the session will guide us through the topic of moving and composing with intention. We watch each other dance, share observations from in- and outside. We learn to synchronize the intention of our movement and its projection.
Carolina thinks of the aspects of the body which have never been controlled, as an infinite field of investigation and crystallized energy from which she seeks her dance. For her, each dance is an open space that welcomes all overflows.
She works with clear guidelines and exercises, related to the language and poetry of dance and other arts. The provided frames for improvisation, composition and feedback allow you to connect to deeper layers of your ‘speaking body’.
