For whom
Experience of dance is very welcome but not required, you might come from a different field. If you need more detailed information please contactemilie

These four sessions of dance improvisation are inspired by Laban’s theory of effort which looks at the movement’s relation to weight, to space, to time, and to flow. Participants will expand their practice of movement and form a vocabulary of various qualities. What would be a heavy and direct movement, a sudden and light movement, a discontinuous indirect breath? Through exercises of breath, walks, running practices, and guided improvisation, participants will tickle their habits and find out new modes of perception and of actions through the lens of qualities.
