The workshop begins with very precise and technical work on walking that will include alignment, weight transfer and possible ways to connect our bodies to external space as well as to each other. This work proposes to the participant to move away from individualised, stylised ways of thinking about walking, leading towards a more neutral, functional activity of moving through space.
The second part of the four day workshop is a collective interpretation of a score – an exercise in being simultaneously aware of the individual within the group, as well as an enquiry into the potential of a simple encounter between bodies, space and time.
Open to performers as well as people with any kind of body practice, this workshop is a prelude to the exhibition A Slightly Curving Place, presented by Alserkal Arts Foundation,which opens on 3 March in Concrete, Alserkal Avenue
March 1-4, 2023, Dubai.
Organized by Alserkal Arts Foundation in collaboration with Goethe-Institut.
