Release Technique – Enjoying the Laws of Motion

The workshop is based on the main premises of Release Technique considering the body as an open system that endures the laws of motion – inertia, reciprocal actions and impulses – which help us to dance and enjoy the intensity of our movements. Self-perception of movement is the main goal that will help renounce extra muscular force.

Tools for a Thinking Body

If we visualise the creation of a dance piece as a puzzle – and if as a dancer you would like to be an active piece on the board – you need to be a thinking body that transforms, translates the basic material and is able to surprise yourself. During this week of work, we will deal and improvise with space and time alterations of a set movement phrase.
