Aspetos Coreográficos na Improvisação

Workshop with Francisco Camacho / +16 years old

An approach to contemporary dance is proposed, through creative strategies explored individually and collectively, in an atmosphere of openness and appreciation of different contributions. The aim of the workshop is to stimulate and deepen the practice of improvisation, taking it as an engine of choreographic possibilities. We want to exercise the operation on the emerging movement, identifying and testing different possibilities to direct, develop and reconfigure it. The work will be developed in accordance with the particular characteristics of each participant, exploring their expressive physical qualities and presence. But interaction with the group will also be important, exploring the increased potential of creativity developed in dialogue and collaboration.
