About the Workshop: Falling & Rolling
This workshop is based on a physical and powerful floorwork using movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and release of energy throughout the body to activate the relationship between the centre and limbs. We will focus on exploring the main laws of physics: cohesion and expansion, elements from the flying low technique. Within this range we will study various ways to roll in all directions “Falling and Rolling”, dropping and lifting smoothly and quickly by keeping a low and strong centre. We will also investigate and focus on understanding the anatomy of the locomotor system, because without this knowledge, it can cause unnecessary loss of energy.
In this training we will do special exercises to prepare for this form of physically demanding movement.

GN | MC have been developing their own artistic language through movement and constantly redefining themselves while searching for new contexts and territories for dance. Their artistic work continues to pass over a wide range of progression.
“Our approach to dance reconfigures from one project to another, with every work achievement it becomes a learning process where we discover new places to explore, that later on lay out into a specific language and contour.”
Guy Nader was awarded with the first prize in Masdanza International Festival in 2010 with his solo WHERE THE THINGS HIDE.
