OPEN TO ALL LEVELS AND BACKGROUNDS. Does a matter if you are or not a dancer, if you have or not experience.

 

We will create a short solo, during four days ONLINE work. And share with the others.

 

DO I WORK ALONE? IN THIS MEETING IN SPECIAL WE WILL WONDERING ABOUT IT. IN YOUR PERSONALIZED FORM, YOUR OWN QUESTIONS, AND CURIOSITIES. THE APPROACH WOULD BE ACCORDING TO YOUR NEEDS.

 

I developed research in solos / group pieces and experimented for hours in the studio alone. As a composer and choreographer, this has given me tools, clear guidelines and I am still discovering it. That is what I want to share with you besides other elements.

It is an opportunity that leads us to reflect. With the help of our emotions, to understand another way of dancing from our own capacities and possibilities. And the current social context. When we stay together, we can face our fears, our reality, and create a new version of ourselves.

 

I invite you to build clear intentions. Acceptance, strength, mental, physical abilities, confidence in yourself, and in others. A more conscious approach to what we are: mind, body, and spirit. A body that moves under the consciousness of love.

*The workshop take place with the minimum of 8 people.

 More about our meeting:

*Open to all levels & backgrounds in movement.

*Professional Dancers & movers are more than welcome. To face other “borders”.

The workshop seeks to offer a clear way to obtain knowledge and self-awareness through the body in movement. How can we find a bridge between reason and emotion? A conscious state of transformation of the interpreter. How to get the participants out of their everyday life and their seemingly “natural” way? And invites the artist – interpreters to get involved in that daily life and identify with the present. 

 

The methodologyphysically: is developed through concrete patterns of improvisation in altered states with different body development and/into methods of meditation. Which are then framed in a real social context, or unreal. Choreographic tools, analysis of creation in solo – dance.

 

The methodologymentally: Alexander in the last eight years has emerged in the knowledge of ancestral cultures and other methods of communication, social development and listening. He has been certified in MBSR (“Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction”) by the Medicine School of Massachusetts. Carrillo also  develops through meditation specific methods for body development and communication, complemented with his artistic knowledge such as choreographer, dancer and body techniques. Alexanderexplores the body from different perspectives of contemporary dance techniques and emotional states. As a support, a background in Colombian Folklore and Afro-contemporary. Creative techniques (awareness, improvisation, and composition). Theatre, Qigong and Kung Fu. Alexander has taught ‘CUERPO PRESENTE: The Inner Beast’ since 2009 in Belgium, Spain, Colombia, Mexico, and Germany.

 

Guidelines and aims developed during the practical process:

 

  • Tools of improvisation / decision making.
  • Creative and practical elements in the research room.
  • Create awareness of the body as a story / time construction in a space.
  • Space awareness: individual, public, collective and private.
  • Better process your internal organic sensations.
  • Personal knowledge through the spirit and meditation: rational control, trance, presence, resonance, dialogue, and stillness. 
  • Personal biography.
  • Individual and group discussions.
  • Performative guidelines, based on agreements established during each session.

 

Each one, from their own perspective and their experience, will illustrate the audience with their ideas, fears, insecurities, questions and contradictions. Together with the creation process, we will frame it in an actual social context. What reflection do we do? How do we reach a physical or emotional state and transform it without losing our essence, our spirit? What tools do we use? How to recreate a clear space in another symbolically and develop the ability to play with it? 

 

Alexander believes life as a journey. During the journey, it is possible to identify emotions and themes, which are consciously transformed into performative states, physical risk, mental and spiritual practices.

 

Alexander Carrillo,Colombian-born and Berlin-based choreographer, dancer and maker. Carrillo focuses his artistic research on the ‘ugly’ and grotesque in humans, seeing it as a mirror of reality. He questions ideas of ‘beauty’ and the role of the audience in the performing arts.

His work is developed through historical research with a contemporary point of view, looking into the personal, social and political through an interdisciplinary approach.

“A conscious state of transformation. It invites us to get involved in that daily life and the present… ready to share our body memories, experiences, and love for our body, dance and movement.”

 

“I believe today´s world needs art to heal, needs art to heal our bodies from our souls. Art as a tool of transformation. From our inner feeling and sensations. From our inner beast, being present. With a conscience practice. (Is not easy – for sure is fun). Then there is not past to regret of, there is not present to be disappointed of or future to be worry about. Just moments of learning. Moments of understand our own world, our inner beast, and our own life. So long, we can share and maybe understand others world life. A present to life and future to create.”

Alexander Carrillo
