THE CREATIVE BODY


The creative body


In this movement class we develop the individuals physical vocabulary in relation to the group.


The body is our primary source of communication, that expresses and mirrors experiences, drives and feelings. We start out with floor work, going into improvisations, body memory and choreographic tasks.


This work deepens the skills of the physical performer, exploring the individuals energies and movement in combination with group awareness.

GPS MOVEMENT SYSTEM

GPS MS


The GPS Movement System is an emotional body memory system for dancers, actors and mime artists. This system is suitable for any performer:


  •    Who creates their own material, or who forms part of a group devising process. 


  •    Who creates movements or longer choreographic sequences based on text.


  •    Who creates stories based on movements from their own world of experience and memories. 


GPS MS is based on physical movements created from the performer's spine, which are sent through the body, by focusing on the body's closing and opening impulses, and are boosted with melodramatic feelings - as a physical mask - put on the face, the shoulders, the bottom, the knees and the feet.


By repeating the 60 minutes GPS MS sessions a minimum of 3 times, the sessions will create an emotional spine release, which will help the performer to reconnect and clean their own emotions through the session. This will help the performer to recognize their own emotions and create clean and organic movements.



The GPS MS has 3 faces:  


  • A 60 minutes body cleaning and strengthening session
  • Personal unique 99 movements alphabet and 
  • The ensemble 100/100/100 devising tool



Physical 60 minutes Body Cleaning & Strengthening Session.

In this 60 minutes movement session you will be working from standing up to laying down to standing up again. 

Tapping, shaking and boosting your body with energy. A 60 minutes journey through the melodramatic feelings - explored and connected from your spine. This system will boost and clean your movements as a performer and connect your movements as an ensemble. 


Your Personal Unique 99 Movements Alphabet.

From melodramatic feelings you will create 16 circles of movements, 9 personal movements and 6 connecting movements. These 99 movements will be your personal movements alphabet, created out of your own Movement DNA.


The Ensemble 100/100/100 Devising Tool.

If you work on a solo performance you will create your movements from the spine through your unique 99 movements alphabet and action movements. If you work as an ensemble - the 99 Movements Alphabet will connect you as an ensemble through the devising process of the ensemble's unique Movements DNA. 

Through the 100/100/100 tool system it will be possible for the ensemble to create movements combined with text and voice. Movements based on a combination of plastic/ mechanic/ emotion.

CORPOREAL MIME

Corporeal Mime


In corporeal mime classes it is intended to develop the geometric spirit following some objectives: 


To identify each body segment consciously mobilizing them according to the concepts of planes, two-dimensional and three-dimensional through exercises on the Decroux technique and the classic corporeal mime figures and pieces. 


Know and apply the concepts of: time, space, action, attitude, gestures and movement. 


Consciously realize ideas that have a logical sense of body segments with different dynamics and qualities of movement, in concrete and/or abstract actions.

BUTOH

Butoh


Butoh opens our bodies to be moved by images and energies.


Our inner ear is tuned in on the vibrations of the surroundings, allowing us to travel through an abstract narrative.


These classes are based in a variety of exercises where the dance appears out of individual and shared stories.


Already from the warm up we work with emptying the mind, to give space to impulses and creativity, so we can immerse into a state of deep presence and attention.

CLASSICAL BALLET 

Classical Ballet 


In my teaching I focus on the technique behind the steps and the many details which is hidden in them.


I work with the natural grace, softness and strength in feet and legs (slow/fast), good placement and lengthening the body.


The combinations are based on simplicity so the dancer can focus on the technique.
