Deconstructed Handstand

A weekend of technical and creative handbalancing with Verena Schneider
7-9 September, 2018

For handbalancers – dancers – movers – acrobats

In this workshop I will share my way of training, combining both technical and creative approaches. Studying in LE LIDO (Centre des Arts de Cirque de Toulouse) and graduating as handbalancer passionate about dance, I am interested to find the movement and balance in between.

To make the handstand more ‘moved’ and the movement more balanced…….

We will pass through technical and creative handstand training into movement and improvisation.
All the training is on the floor (no blocks or handstand canes).
Technical handstand approach (Pascal Angelier) and influenced by dancers such as Tomislav English and Rob Hayden.

Celebrate the failure in the improvisation. How can we accept that our handstand and movement are not always the same, the wished perfection of training becomes a trap for the performance.

Regarding the questions how and why do I train and create, the workshop will be physically demanding and with an attention on endurance and awareness training.
