Starting from the idea that our body constantly generates electrical impulses, during this workshop we will play with the possibility of sculpting with energy through movement.
With choreographic sequences and improvisation tasks that will alternate, we will work with joint mechanics, enhancing the work of tendons as energy generators. The focus is to prepare the body and activate concentration for a dynamic work.
The use of floor work will be an important tool in this workshop, blurring the difference between floor and vertical work.
The more technical phase will gradually transform into a laboratory part, to work with creation tools developed by the company during the creative process of Elektrical Body, the last production from the company.
Working with choreographic material from this performance, we will play with the idea of generating a magnetic field as a group, and study how this field affects each physical action.
