1.30am-4pm - Passing Through
We will spiral, run, slide, and sing to pass through the floor and other bodies by playing with speed and energy! In the morning, you will be introduced to the basic principles (‘gathering and sending’) by practising sequences of set material with different pathways. In the afternoon, you will explore instant-composition rules and group improvisation. Peer work will encourage collaboration and analysis, and the session will include reflections on Zambrano’s philosophy.
