The class will provide tools to explore the physical and sensorial aspects of our bodies. The structure is shaped from a warm up inspired by somatic practices, anatomy and martial arts, followed by floorwork elements seeking moments of (contact) improvisation. With the lens on the physical forces observed on the transfer of weight, balance, flow and rhythmic dynamics the aim is to find an autonomy of creation and identity in the relationship between the bodies. I am looking for playful moments in order to step out of our comfortable zones. From individual to collective investigations, we activate our presence to generate an available body.

Jorge Bascuñan is a Brazilian multidisciplinary artist based in Berlin. He holds an MA in contemporary dance education, (MA CoDE Frankfurt am Main, Germany), and BA in Physical Education.
