Bratislava, SLOVAKIA | 20.-22.4. 2018 | World Circus Day. More info.

  • Aerial Silks: Transitions and Fluidity  (level intermediate-advanced)
    – Saturday April 21st at 12pm.
    This workshop will be focused on „ways“. Ways in and out of moves and tricks, from one into the other. We will work on sequencing, trying to blend the otherwise separate pieces into one continuous movement flow on aerial silks. Also, we will try to find new transitions and variations in and out of routine moves, so that we refresh our movement material and avoid stereotypes. We will think about aerial dance on silks in terms of „movement“, not in terms of „poses“. This brings a sense of connection and action into the experience, instead of the sense of isolation and statics.
  • Aerial Hoop: Refreshing and Inovating Movement Material (level intermediate-advanced)
    – Saturday April 21st at 10am.
    This will be a creatively and thoughtfully oriented workshop in which we will creatively work with a given movement material – we will be searching for new possible ways of executing tricks and sequences, so that we bring originality and our own “hand-writing” into our choreographic work.  We will learn new moves, but we will also rework and refurbish our old, grey and “boring” material. We will think not only about WHAT we do on hoop, but also HOW we do it and WHY we do it.
  • Aerial Technique, Conditioning and Flexibility (on hoop + silks)
    Sunday April 22nd at 10am.
    This workshop will be focused on improving our movement technique in aerial dance. It will consist of technical exercises and short sequences which will also bring attention to learning the breathing principles – that is the connection between breath-and-movement. With this understanding, we will focus on various strengthening, conditioning and stretching exercises on silks and hoop, which will help us to prepare the body and mind for high quality work further on, with tricks and choreographies.

      “Living Breathing Body”. More info here.
     “Breathing body is a living body. Body, breath and movement are always happening in the present moment. This technical class will focus on finding fluidity and clarity of movement on fabric through activating and enlivening the full body, from skin, through joints, to every cell.  We will learn to be present in mo(ve)ment and to “own it“ as performers.In the class, we will focus not only on WHAT we do on silks, but on HOW we do it and WHY we do it.  Working on various sequences, we will think about aerial dance on fabric in terms of “movement“, not in terms of “poses“. This brings a sense of connection and action into the experience, instead of the sense of isolation and steadiness. However, we will also search for “movement in stillness”, discovering the subtle, intrinsic waves of movement within us, the so called “little dance”, observable only with a calm mind and perceptive, sentient body.The class will also offer technical exercises and sequences which will bring attention to breathing principles and the connection between breath-and-movement. How to move efficiently with breath; how to go with it, not against it. How to embody the pulsation happening in the breathing body and transfer it into movement on aerial silks.Understanding of this will prepare the body and mind for higher quality work further in our choreographies on any apparatus. It will transform us into radiating performers capable of brining self-expression to every single mo(ve)ment.In the end, it all comes back down to the basic idea: Moving body is my presence.”
