TEACHING

INTERPLAY

WORKSHOP FOR PROFESSIONAL DANCERS

“My class is very physical and 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.

As much as I love the clarity of lines, my work is never about creating “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 activate and fully reconnect to our agile and powerful body.”

“This was a challenging and physical class! Great for improving technic!” – Antonin Comestaz [choreographer / dancer (Nl) / workshop participant]

“Andrea’s teaching is refreshing and intelligent, knowing the right mix of when to push and challenge the participants to go beyond their limits and when to let them choose the intensity of engagement with the work. She also brings with her the joy of moving, which creates a great atmosphere to work in.” – Nayana Bhat [professional dancer (Aut), workshop participant]
