Urša Sekirnik (SI, ES): Push to Move

thrust as the engine for movement


Klas focuses on thrust as the engine for movement. Both from the ground and from the partner. How to transfer "push to move", the same principle that we use when walking, to other ways of movement and even to work in a couple? We will explore this principle first through open improvisational tasks that will be given to us helped to move the body into space, and then also through phrases on the floor and in the vertical, with which we will test the principle in pre-prepared material.
