In this workshop we will open up a playground for all involved. Each day will start with a physical class inspired by various techniques and methods such as release, yoga, floorwork and somatic movement in order to tune in with our body, ground its energy and open up our senses for body textures, volume, dynamics and space. The class will be followed by research sessions involving improvisation through physical and sensorial ideas. In groups, with a partner and alone we will play around with tasks, ideas and games of composition and move forward into eventual creation from the participant.
