ULTIMA VEZ REPERTORY

26 - 30 April 2021

It is about movement “as a theatrical act”. Participants will follow the creation process going from the origins of the material, the working transitions until the final performed results.

The workshop will focus on the energetic and physical repertory vocabulary from the three first pieces of Ultima Vez: “What the Body Does Not Remember”, “Les Porteuses de mauvaises nouvelles” and “The weight of a hand”. It is about movement “as a theatrical act”. Participants will follow the creation process going from the origins of the material, the working transitions until the final performed results. 

This vocabulary will be also the starting point to a guided development of the participants’ own choreographic work. Creating their compositions through the form, the emotion, the strong theatrical atmosphere and the intention of the proposed material. 

We will explore and confront this material through improvisations, floorwork, contactand partner work, group forms and objects’ manipulation. To arrive to this vocabulary participants will work with a wide range of concepts such as: tension, instinct, chaos, sensuality, risk, trust, protection, dependency, power, strategies, neutrality, physical extremes. 

The workshop is a collaboration between Dansalliansen and Danscentrum Syd
