Workshop: Creating and Destroying Worlds
2012, June 27, @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0$25
Warming up deeply through both improvisations and formal modalities this workshop will be an investigation into the body as a container for multiplicity of movement and gestural narratives.
We will use improvisation structures working with presence as a psychological vs. movement initiated tool and explore the subtleties of the worlds created. We will train ourselves into shape-shifting playing between presenting human, creature or cultural referenced images.
We will start with building up individual movement narrative processes and slowly transform into an ensemble creation of a specific world. Once establishing a world we will play with what it means to destroy the meaning, the image and the idea of this world, through using contrasting physical and emotional states.
Zornitsa is particularly interested in a constant shift of extreme emotional states and distorted body images. She plays with ideas of meaning and recognizability, often mixing dance moves appropriated from different movement genres. She is deeply inspired by Deborah Hay’s “Ready, Fire, Aim” approach and uses it in her creations of embodied characters.
