Evangelos Poulinas Class Description: let’s find the most efficient way of performing a demanding movement sequence. analyzing the movement itself, the physical forces, and the anatomical characteristics of our bodies, we will explore ways to maximize our performance by combining the given possibilities to work to our advantage. we will use the force of gravity to ground us, to support us, to allow us to take risks and to push our limits, in order to finally escape gravity. utilizing our potential in the highest degree, we will evolve and discover new facets of ourselves.
Victor Rottier Class Description: I give you slam! and a studio in New York.
a highly physically demanding, movement oriented workshop stuffed with set material, technical movements and improvisation.
I focus on strengthening the individual while flocking and flying solo.
Aiming to challenge you, the space and the group while pushing to gain clarity and precision.
We will grind through the floor, cripple the space, sweat and trample on boundaries in these days.
And of course all of this will be accompanied by handpicked and 100% organic tunes!
johannes wieland Class Description: i am a loser, and you, you’re a loser too. then along comes this day. it makes you invincible. but you’re still a loser. the only thing left to do is to make your way to new york to participate in a workshop with first-rate-loser johannes wieland. be prepared for physical and mental exhaustion, being turned inside out and upside down with improvisation, movement and text.
