Two days of movement with Antoni Androulakis
30-31 October, 2021
Wilhelminenhofstr 91, 12459 Berlin
Having composed & decomposed my floor work practice over the past 9 years, this workshop follows up my ongoing research to develop tools that enable movement artists to expand their physicality. It will include a physical preparation which consists of a mix of mobility exercises, making our bodies ready to incorporate new information in a sustainable way.
The practice breaks down the question of: “ how to use gravity as a movement generator ? ”
Using mainly improvisation, this question will be answered through the exploration of different concepts such as:
– Becoming conscious of the use of our weight through the points of contact we create with the floor.
– Exploring the idea of being both relaxed & active; using the needed tension in order to facilitate movement while getting rid of unnecessary rigidity.
– Using our body as a holistic organism. Seeing it as a whole rather than separated, we will find ways to make our full body contributes to the movement.
Being interested in acrobatics, I will share different elements that will be worked as movements rather than “tricks” to include them in one’s own dance.
I do not differentiate in between the way I deal with movement and how I deal with my daily life. My teaching is therefore a synthesis of my intuitive understanding of things I am actively practicing: awareness, challenge & playfulness.
