The class is structured as guided improvisation and includes technical exercises implemented into the momentary tasks. LAMA brings into consciousness our connection as humans to our physicality, imagination, senses, observation skills and fun. LAMA is very much inspired by the methods and techniques that come from Edan’s professional experience including GAGA, Ballet, Cunningham, Fascia Therapy but mainly common sense.
