The workshop will be based on the use of weight-shift and balance,while sharing the ground with a partner. The focus will be on awakening a sensitive body, which is very readable as well as transparent to reading the impulses that are transferred from the others. Giving attention to the way we approach the body of the other, with sensitivity and care, in order to create an environment where any kind of lift can happen without much effort or pain.

We will build the tonicity of the body, which is strong, yet articulated and agile. A body, which can constantly switch between the role of a ‘base’ and a ‘flyer’ in order to get the full understanding of each situation. The work is underlined by building the trust to fully let go of the weight and giving in to the responsibility for the other. Only through such an environment, can true playfulness emerge and imagination starts taking place.

The language we deal with is on the border between contact, partnering and circus.
