Living Inside the Instrument – Dance Technique with Verónica Garzón
The overall aim of this class is to stimulate a continuous whole body awareness of movement which results in a specific presence and quality, inspired by some of the core principles from Cunningham Technique.
This specific quality refers to a vital and lively dancing, as an unlimited potential for temporal-spatial design, which prevent the body from static images and beliefs about the dance movement and its limits.
I will use a contemporary approach, while focusing on aspects such as: Center of Energy, Isolation, and Rhythm and Coordination of the limbs in the space. We will apply these through different combinations, making use of silence, sound, and music – by means of continuously repeating them or just doing them once.
The experience of subsidiary challenging concepts of the technique as problem-solving, sense of phrasing, and mental strength, will be reflected on and evaluated during the class.
We won’t look for the perfect body shape and tone, but for the performing ever-present body, manifesting an “Intelligent body” that represents Clarity and Efficiency.
