The main goal of this workshop is to broaden our capacities as performers. We use a complementary approach of learning skills and practicing how to use them within a performing context.
Dance Days Chania Summer Workshop
We are interested in a highly physical movement vocabulary which challenges our body in multiple ways. We aim for a full body awareness and the comfort to move through all levels, axes and dynamics. To achieve that we practice full dancing, using elements of acrobatics, improvisation, partnering and set movement phrases.
Patricia Hastewell & Alexandros Anastasiadis
The workshop is targeted of physical performers of any kind. We would be happy to teach to people not only from a dance background.
The broadening of the body’s capacities is used as a base for researching performative qualities. In this sense, we are curious about how we can view each movement material in a way that it can become malleable and expressive. We are interested in each person’s creativity, in how they use their body to express things on stage. To that goal we will be using a lot of theatrical exercises, instant composition, exercises of observation and feedbacking. In the end, we will create an open stage environment, complimenting and inspiring each other within the group, with the ultimate goal of growing as a whole.
