Roser López Espinosa / FLOORWORK, PARTNERING AND CREATION TOOLS

C level

This workshop proposes a technical and playful approach to floor-work and partnering.

Strong physicality, delicacy, complicity and imagination. We will approach movement from the basis of an articulated, soft, agile, fast, versatile and powerful body. Taking advantage of the movement capacity of the spine as a motor for movement (curves, spirals, twists, ripples and combined undulating movements), we will go through floor-work with rolls, glides, simple acrobatic movements and jumps. We will do partnering exercises, researching on weight transfers, movement projection in space and group mechanics. We will wake the fine-tuning, the awareness and the sense of team up. We will put the different eye ranges, detail, precision and playfulness into practice.
