INTERPLAY // SURFING THE WAVE
TRAINING | WORKSHOPS | MASTERCLASSES
ABOUT THE TRAINING
Interplay is a dynamic training exploring dynamic movement through all levels in space.
“As much as I love the clarity of lines, this work is never about creating and rigid “shapes”. It focuses on weight and the stream of breath as generators of movement; on how to utilise these in an ongoing interplay between release, recovery and a conscious act of directing. In this work we explore ways to soften in order to expand, to activate and fully reconnect to our agile and powerful body.
The essence of this training is a research around the fluidity of the body, playing with release and weight and sequentiality, in an increasingly energetic / dynamic way throughout class. Released and available to be able to surfe and play with natural forces, riding an energetic stream and wave; learning to stop powering & making every movement happen muscularly. To allow motion & movement to happen, while still clearly directing & sending it. One central focus is alignment that allows movement to travel through the body. The training offers a playground to challenge and hopefully surprise ourselves.
Movement, be it floor work or standing material, is approached as directing and streaming an energetic flow, respecting a natural trajectory and alignment. This allows us to be energetic and, as well, to gain speed, if so wished, in the most enjoyable, efficient, organic as well as healthy way – be it in minimal or expanded movements flying through and eating the space.”
– to move in an organic, released while highly agile and energetic way, maintaining the space within and fluidity of the body.
– to start movement from different approaches.
– to surf movement as an energetic stream, based on release/falling, catching and sending movement.
– to be/come the master of this tool, our body and the timing, dynamic and musicality in which we perform a movement.
