If we visualise the creation of a dance piece as a puzzle – and if as a dancer one would like to be an active piece on the board – one needs to be a thinking body that changes, transforms, translates the basic material and is able to surprise themself. This week will involve working with space and time changes to improvise a given phrase.

Realtime composition throughout improvisational sessions will be proposed to open up ideas of interaction. Thus, offering the possibility to be able to transform the dance material in time and space with different tools provided in form of games.

The last day of work will incorporate summoning all the material created and try to make the skeleton of a dance piece to give everyone the chance of performing it to each other and having the sense of continuity this work should have. Marta shares her own experience as a dancer and gives participants specific guidelines and suggestions for applying principles of transformation and composition.
