The content and style of the workshop can be customized, and different variations are available.
The duration of each workshop varies from a two-hour class to a full annual course.
This class initially invites us to observe and feel the physical body, the breath, the base of the body that comes in contact with the floor. The floor work is significant and extensive.
The direction of the organs, the connection and separation between them, as a motivation for movement. Using changes in weight transfer, space, momentum and what is available for movement. From there, the class gradually develops into physical standing and movement in space. The method is based on internalizing and visualizing the structure of the skeleton and the concepts: directionality, leaning, pushing, softness, sharpness. The lesson is structured around three main phrases that last for several lessons and include parts of the repertoire from Shlomit Fundminsky's artistic, stage language.
Improvisation into Performance
Exploring the body through physical instructions and by different movement languages. Focusing on the anatomy of the body, as well as a deep look at cognitive processes, from the body's perception of movement to the conscious choices that performers must take in the immediacy of the present moment. How abstract movement enables emotional work and produces concrete - stories, figures, situations, associations. We will improve, clarify our bodywork, intuition, and choices in the present tense. We will work around subjects that we will explore in solo, pairs, group. Improvised within defined and restricted moves. We will experience watching and talking about improvisation.
Laboratory for research of a personal creation. The physical body is an essential part of the process. How to define an idea, a desire to create? What is the process and how to bring it to the stage? The focus is on creating solo, as a possible basis for duet and group work.
