PARTNERING ACROBATICS & FLOW
– with Adrian Iselin and Vega Luukkonen –
This workshop is bringing together qualities of two peculiar movers from different backgrounds. Adrian, whose passion is danceacrobatics and acroyoga, and Vega who has been dancing and practicing contact improvisation more than 20 years.
We wish to bring together flow, fluid movement and sequentiality from the world of dance and contact. Deeper understanding of the underlying movement principles behind the lifts and landings. Sometimes transitions and dance in between of the flights and positions are as important, as the trick itself. How do we move together three-dimensionally through the space, instead of stationary positioning.
From the universe of acrobatics we will source information about the tone of the body, use of our bones, supporting structures and architecture of the skeleton. From acrobatics we bring different ways to enter the lifts, how to use your legs and arms in order to give a flight to your partner. On the contrary in contact improvisation we use much more our center as a vehicle of lifting, guiding and transferring the weight.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
In the morning we will focus on building different skills in solo and partnering situations. Getting familiar with floorwork and useful movement patterns. Getting an understanding of movement principles such as push & pull, leaning and counterbalancing. Understanding how we can use momentum, inertia, suspension, bounce and swing as useful tools to create flow, lightness, fluidity and organicity. We will travel through the space with different tasks and learn specific lifts and landings, and develop them into small continuous choreographies.
During the afternoon we build longer choreography based on the material we´ve been working on the morning. We wish to create organic dance flow where the tricks and lifts are weaved together as a fixed breathing choreography.
