The class is conceived as a soft action movie – a set up for holding on to a “tenderness in being” as our body takes various shapes. Referring to working methods and creative practices of the company Liquid Loft we’ll move our way through a series of warm up exercises into choreographed sequences and simple improvisational propositions to play with. We will explore how our body and voice can support, contradict, inspire and shape one another.
