We start our first Profitraining with Felipe Fizkal, one of our artists in the lockdown residency project
About the Training:
“The Practice” Is a mix of Laban-Bartenieff tools and improvisation, release, acrobatics and martial principles. Where we play with different activities like guided improvisations, functional training for dancers and choreographic material going through the floor, medium and high levels getting the understanding of different body part as supports and coordinations of our phicality.
We start with a warm up that allows us to recognize the different patterns of the movement: push, yield, reach, bring, in a space of improvisation trying out the different levels low, medium and high space, a work of conscience for the supports, then also combining exercises of the martial arts like kicks, combos; acrobatics, balance on hands and some movements of the capoeira practice. We develop a continuous and functional training, where muscular intelligence, coordination, memory and fine motor skills are challenged.
Finally we worked on choreographic material with aspects of release technique, martial movements and features of the work on «isolating actions» «understanding directions from the hands». Closing with a strong continuous repetition of these materials to dance and find aspects about interpretation and intention.
