MASTERCLASS: En búsqueda de nuevas estéticas de movimiento
A masterclass addressed to dancers, choreographers, stage directors, dramaturges, and students of dance and theatre, to share the working methodology developed during the creative encounter that gave rise to the piece The Very Last Northern White Rhino.
In this masterclass, the company wishes to share, with the people attending, the working methodology developed during the creative encounter that gave rise to the piece The Very Last Northern White Rhino. The session revolves around concepts like the relationship between choreographer and performer, the pairings intuition and rationalization, thought and action, or "construction of the gaze”. During the session improvisation exercises will be done and compositional tools will be presented that, based on the deconstruction of languages and specific dance techniques, make it possible to investigate the essence of movement and its expressive capacity and to find new aesthetics of representation. The different styles of urban dance demonstrated by the performer of the piece will be taken as an example and a starting point, many of them inspired on African dances. In this way the discourse will be taken to the body, and the transformation of the gathering into an opportunity to rethink practice will be proposed.
This workshop is addressed to dancers, choreographers, stage directors, dramaturges, and students of dance and theatre. It is open to members of the general public who might find it interesting as an approach to an artistic working methodology and a process of contemporary creation.
