I would like to improve awareness when improvising and there for gain totality when working on set material and performing. My aim is to give more confidence to be playful , when creating , improvising and working with different Choreographers . We will work on a very specific improvisation technique which enables the movers ability to discover a very detailed and aware movement quality. The aim is to draw attention to the point where awareness and technique come together. The technique I am teaching is heavily influenced by Hofesh Shechter with whom I am working since 2008.
