Inside Extremity is a contemporary dance course that emphasizes the development of physical strength, awareness, improvisation skills, and personal coordination. By exploring our individuality, we seek to achieve clarity, musicality, and the development of body intelligence, ultimately creating our own unique movement vocabulary. The course is divided into two distinct parts. The first part involves improvisation within a defined physical framework, where participants engage in directed tasks. The second part features a variety of kinetic patters and a final long movement sequence that combines improvisational elements with the challenges of memory, stamina and coordination.
