TWV & The Playground Team
I want us to forget everything we know about instincts and rational impulses. In this session, we will attempt to suppress our first instincts and uncover the second ones, relearn how to function outside of habit, outside of choreography. The primary exploration will be in relation to a chair on which we forget how to sit. Forgetfulness translated into movement. Anything can happen.
Max no. of dancers: at capacity
The TWV would be such a great opportunity to make a new work with new dancers based on my new wip ORIGEN, teaching the repertory and making the dancer record themselves to later make a new film. A new chapter ofVideo Project #STATE 🏴 is the project I made during lockdown with my wish to connect people from around the world with my choreography, a fragile geography: STATE. Featuring and premiering the music by Adrian Blezien Pérez, plus 60 dancer from 25 countries.

My Idea for the Playground is called Talking Feet. The feet are usually perceived as a support system for the body while mostly we use our face or hands or the body to express and emote. But what if the feet speak , tell stories or have conversations. This is the idea that I would like to explore with you . We will learn and explore different movement of the feet and using these explorations will create a small piece on zoom. So let the feet do the talking for a change.

I would like to create a short digital dance exploring the topic of COLOUR and the positive emotions coming from it. This is a continuation of the research on colour I did for my solo work SOFT QUESTIONS. I would like to work individually with each dancer before the session to find a colour that unlocks their creativity.
