Ismael IvoIMPULSIVE BODY
Improvisation Class for Performers
This class is focused into differentiate between space within the reach of the body and the more general space surrounding it. The space within our reach, our “personal space” or kinesphere is a bubble and with the help of a hand size ball we are able to stretch out in all directions while standing in its centre or on one leg. If we move away to another part of the room our kinespheres will travel with us. It is a tool to encourage movement possibilities. This technique is guided by the hands with the body rolling on the floor, the ball rolling around the body or throwing, turning, falling and catching. The ball lying lightly in one or two hands, fingers relaxed. This class is not based on difficulties but on a discharge of movement impulses bringing the body from sitting, standing or walking positions. Other elements and objects will be introduced, in the character of DANCE INSTALLATION. Variations in the use of space will enable the students to explore body and gravity with the help of the ACROBATIC SILK-PERFORMANCE technique. The creation of movements off the ground enriches the performative technique skills. It is a class in which the performer researches and extends his/ her movement capabilities.
