Acrobatics and partnering through the lens of agility with Winston Reynolds
6-7 December, 2019
Wilhelminenhofstr 91, 12459 Berlin
There is a certain sensitivity in acrobatics behind all the larger movements. It’s a tool where the smallest adjustment can make a significant difference on the eventual physical and physiological outcome while practicing.
With this in mind we will be looking at a ongoing research and vocabulary of both solo and collaborative acrobatic situations, with the attempt of using this strand of mobility as a vehicle to expand possible movement choices and directions within the form.
Using Winston’s interpretation of agility we will work on balance, strength, coordination and speed to see how this can be cultivated into both solo practice and partnering situations.
There will be specific work on building and cultivating our proprioceptive blind spots within our physiology and to see how we can build on a sustainable and holistic practice.
Times: Friday and Saturday : 14.00-17.30h
Price: Early bird: 85 – Regular price: 100
