Going deeper workshop - Flying Low and Instant Composition

Flying Low
After more than 14 years as a close follower of David Zambrano, I will share a series of phrases and exercises which experiment on the Flying Low principles. Flying Low classes focus mainly on the dancer’s relationship with the floor. The class utilizes simple movement patterns that involve breathing, speed, and the release of energy throughout the body to activate the relationship between the centre and the joints, moving in and out of the ground more efficiently by maintaining a centred state. There is a focus on the skeletal structure that will help improve the dancers' physical perception and alertness. The class includes partnering work and movement phrases, which explore the primary laws of physics: cohesion and expansion.

Instant Composition
The focus will be on building and expanding imagination and creativity in spontaneous performance. As a choreographer, Narendra will lead you to work on different movement possibilities and approaches through his research and investigation. Participants will be given specific tasks to understand how to create different body language as a performer.
