The Russian Maria Kolegova graduated from the Center of Contemporary Art in Yekaterinburg as a contemporary dancer. She has been part of the National Russian Ballet of Moscow for more than six years and has been working together with several well-known choreographers. Kolegova debuted at Ultimav Vez in 2012 during the revival of What the Body Does Not Remember, followed by nieuwZwart, Spiritual Unity, Speak low If you speak love… and Mockumentary of a Contemporary Saviour.
This workshop with Maria Kolegova will be exploring themes and vocabulary from Ultima Vez’s most recents creation like Speak low if you speak love… and Mockumentary of a contemporary saviour. Participants will explore and confront Vandekeybus’ energetic vocabulary through floor work, partner and contact work and movement as a ‘theatrical act’, looking to understand side-effect aesthetics through work with state, intention and spontaneity. The workshop is open to dancers with strong physical capacities.
