Body-Action > Movement-Relation
& Physical Action as Scenic construction
Body-Action > Movement-Relation
It is a training based on the construction of physical actions. It induces the participant to move from a common language and not form dance codes. It decodes and destructs the established and predetermined languages of the dance. The class is representation of control and physical intuition, its purpose is to create states: physical, mental and even emotional from taxation. It takes the body to its maximum capabilities with a corporately controlled risk. Guide the pupils to find the truth in their body and to contact their own way of moving, to assume the information regarding their intuition.
The class is experiential learning.
Physical Action as Scenic Construction
Improvisation of Loss. The emotional act of physicality. The Atlas of the body and its collective trajectories. Laboratory of Partnering.

Life … contradictions in movementAt the moment when there is no contradiction or movement, we die.
How can we start a process and not just start it? How can we be willing to respond and not react? How can we expand our capacity to be preset and listen? How can we be one with the other and not one against the other?, how to avoid falling prisoners in the manner of a teacher?
These are some of the questions that have led us to the search for exercises that raise an active practice, where the student is responsible for their processes and not just imitate forms. We invite you to a space where body and mind work together transforming one another, where you become aware of the importance of a personal practice that makes visible the invisible and clarifies the impulses of a body that can be moved by space and others . Live music will be an essential and constant companion in this laboratory.

The Reflexive Body
The reflexive body
The reflexive body It's a training method based in explorations and corporal visualizations directed to understand the hidden mechanism of the movement, the consequence it could be a more organic and conscious way of moving. It starts as a training where moving, is the logic consequence of each body and then enhance their natural capacities. The class is raised to energize body mechanisms, that will allow actively reflect on the movement through the technical sequences developed in each class. The movement become in the body reflection. The class have a simple structure that enters the student in a gentle way, to end up moving in a complex, dynamic and energetic way. Develops body strengthening through the dynamics and sensations that are organized in the common and uncommon exercises in the dance. The movement is learned from the reasons of the body itself more than the aesthetic ideas. You work with the anatomy, rather than against it.

Based on continuous mechanics and kinematic principles, CONTINUUM is a training system that aims for the continuity of the kinetic chains of movement, its path, and a very specific and uncommon way to use momentum, impulse, space, motion script and physical principles. The class pursue the knowledge of our relationship with the floor and gravity and uses the body as a whole continuous mass instead of segmented parts where movement takes place from the study of weight placement, speed control, space density, planes, continuous movement and circular trajectories. The use of hands, feet, elbows and head will be strengthened as substantial points for pivot, leverage, support and anchorage. We will aim for continuity and a sustained muscular and skeletal consciousness in order to learn how we can transfer, gather and spread our weight anywhere in our body, how the mechanics of each muscle and bone work, and how all our body parts can cooperate to move more efficiently, safely and smoothly. Dancers will develop a new understanding of their bodies by exploring the principles of physics: inertia, centrifugal and centripetal energy, expansion, suspension, strength and resistance, all of which will sustain and generate new skills and abilities for moving, sliding, turning, jumping and falling.
