The masterclass of WArd/waRD dancer Jean-Gabriel Maury and choreographer Ann Van den Broek focuses on the work and movement language of the Flemish choreographer. A language that can be described as dynamic, radical and uncompromising. A dance form that translates emotions and intentions into movement and that greatly exceeds the boundary between dance and performance. During the masterclass you’ll work from the choreography of Ohm with accompanying music. You’ll learn about the specific dance style and methodology with a focus on rhythmic variants, repetition, analyzing movement and its intention.
The next day, on Tuesday 21 March WArd/waRD will perform OHM at theater Bellevue. Participants of this masterclass receive a discount and only pay € 12,- for this performance!! After payment for the class, we will get back to you with a PROMO code.
