Improvisation: Yin & Yang
Yin & Yang, dark and bright, negative and positive, disorder and order, collapse and build, winter and summer.
We put the energy of Yin: natural instinct and Yang: control in your hands. We are to combine the two in harmony. If we have only Yin to the extreme, we will be very unscientific. On the other hand. if we a dominating Yang, then we become all of sudden a machine, no longer a human being.
This improvisation method is a successful combination of both. It’s neither a pure movement of naturalness nor unnaturalness. The ideal is unnatural-naturalness movement or natural-unnaturalness movement.
Using the energy of Yin & Yang, our dance becomes free. Seemingly unstructured, less technically strict and impulsive. However that draws inspiration from everyday dance practices and influences. In this workshop we are able to enhance our movement capacity.
‘If you lift up yourself, then you can lift everything.’
Through this workshop, we are going to have many different experiences: the relationship between the gravity and our body, the perception of balance, expansion and reduction of time and application of our core. We absorb the energy from the ground into our core, apply it to the movement in various ways. We lift ourselves up, jump and turn, collapse and build, draw a beautiful painting in the space, where we dance. Our goal is, instead of fancy and flashy techniques, having strong and exquisite movements.
