Contemporary dance Workshop based on Flying Low technique.
From 2017-03-24 18:00:00 | To 2017-03-26 21:00:00
Sparsh studio. Bouyant Performing Arts, 8/1 Jain House, Esplanade , Kolkata-700069 , West Bengal , India
Flying low technique was developed by David Zambrano after having fatal injuries to his feet. His injuries inspired him to find a different way of moving and thus was developed Flying Low. This workshop focuses mainly on the dancer’s relationship with the floor.
The class utilizes simple movement patterns that involve breathing patterns, speed and the release of energy throughout the body in order to activate the relationship between the center and moving in and out of the ground more efficiently by maintaining a centered state. There is a focus on the skeletal structure that will help improve the dancer’s physical perception and alertness.
The class includes partnering work and movement phrases, which explore the primary laws of physics: cohesion and expansion. The class begins in stillness and students are asked to read their body in a standing position.
They are urged to connect their entire body with the environment: the air, floor, and the energy of others, forming an interconnection. Through the workshop participants can receive immense technical understanding of floor work, negotiating space and speed, fluidity and efficiency in movement.
