You are here:Home/MUSICIANS/2019-1 Partnering LAB IÑAKI AZPILLAGA Tuesday 22 Wednesday 23 January
In the dialogue between partners, two people aim to share the same space and consider their intentions towards each other: since some years this is the theme that Iñaki has been researching more intensively. Closeness, shocks, to give oneself, standing each other, allow the other, stealing, a platform of terms from where we will build up codes for a dialogue. During the process, we will retrieve emotions from our memory, daily acts, old events… inner content to forge our movements. The alternation in our imaginary will serve as guideline to shape dynamics and rhythm to our proposed dances. In practice: Much contact, great feeling to travel in space, games, improvisation and scene time for research moves.
It is not necessary to take both classes. You are welcome to take just one! You can register in advance, please mention the days you plan to take the LAB after the question “specify”
Be warm and ready to go! We advise you to take Iñaki’s open class in advance 11:00 -12:30.
