2021-8 Release the Beast
This 5 days workshop Release the beast is a contemporary floor technique developed by choreographer and teacher Tony Vezich. The technique is a reaction to a serious side effect of his intense and physical working trajectories. In order to help protect his dancers from serious injury Tony started to develop special exercises that developed into a complete technique Release the Beast.
In the workshop there is a heavy emphasis on floor-work and a certain sequential order of the body in relation to the origin of movement initiation. Another defining factor is how to find a powerful centre, how to use this powerful centre to move greater distances within space, especially in relation to the floor and the lower region of a dance space.
Tony will work on a creation which will be shown at an informal presentation on Friday at the end of the day together with all other workshops given that week.
