„Manipulation as a way to creation”
If we can leave negative associations with the word „manipulation”, we would see that this can be a very concrete impulse. We will play with leading and following. Manipulation involves not so much a surrender, as active and conscious follow. We need to be ready to create in our body solo of our leading partner. No matter what impulse will come from outside. We will meet with first law of improvisation – say Yes to impulse, but decide what that means. And then, maybe we will meet with our patterns and clarity of the way of our dance.
Part of the class will be laboratory time – a chance to explore in a group your own question/interest in dance.
