Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th of September from 16:00-18:00
Athanasia Kanellopoulou’s technique workshop is powerful and physical. It derives from her strong technique and performative background and her passion for movement. The workshops are concentrating on the contemporary release technique using not only muscular structures, but also the breath, emphasizing usage of the body center and momentum. The workshops include strong floor work and center practice combinations, which are going through changes of qualities and dynamics. The fascinating movement journey will take the dancers and the participants to a dynamic dance that incorporates understanding of the interior and exterior space.
IMPROVISATION/ CHOREOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
‘’Breaking the common ways, finding our own choreographic language.’’
The second part of the workshop will lead the participants through choreographic processes, providing and proposing tools which will enable them to find new and unexpected choreographic materials, ideas and solutions. Some choreographic materials will be proposed as well as lead you through structured improvisations.
We will work on discovering how a dancer/performer moves during a performance and how one interacts with other participants. Creating improvised suggestions and compositions will be a starting point for creating a common and individual spaces. The generating power will be physical and emotional states, the means: body, voice, character. The goal is to break the common ways that are totally ‘ours’ and search deeper but also further in order to create what is unexpected for ourselves.
Choreographic workshop is the space for creative process to happen. The workshop is addressed to dancers as well as actors and performers with a physical background and experience in movement or physical theatre.
