About the Workshop

This workshop is based on partnering and contact work and on the vocabulary of the work used in GN|MC creation’s processes and researches. We propose tasks and points of departure to start opening up a world of imagination where body is treated from very different points of view. We search for mechanics, observe movement in order to multiply paths and approaches to the understanding of movement and body. We are interested in looking into the possibilities that the body offers and how we make it to arise those possibilities.

We will study different ways to carry the partner (portés), give weight, find common axis, counterweight, balance, move together in space using each other... We will work on developing the ability of trusting the other as well as taking risks. We will learn movement sequences in pairs of earlier works ("repertoire") as well as create and compose sequences based on partner work through concrete physical tasks.

The first 30 minutes will consist in a very basic and dynamic warm up, followed from some guided propositions / improvisations where the participants can interact with each other and develop their own ideas and creativity.
