Her own work has been presented internationally, in Europe/Scandinavia, North/Central America, S/E Asia & India.
Andrea will teach her work “Interplay : In which we travel from more exploratory work, to deepen suggested principles, towards set exercises. Movement, be it floor work or standing material, is approached as directing and streaming an energetic flow. We focus on weight and the stream of breath as generators of movement; on how to utilize these in an ongoing interplay between release, recovery and a conscious act of directing.Though loving the clarity of lines, my work is never about creating “shapes”. The work aims at enhancing our awareness of the kinetic forces we work and play with.This allows us to be energetic and, as well, to gain speed, if so wished – be it in minimal or expanded movements flying through and eating the space.”
