Yes It’s Me (Authentic Improvisation), Sabine Parzer
|About masterclass: ||Improvisation for dancers that focuses on the authentic experience of moving…making choices connected to your whole being requires a wide range of awareness: physical, emotional, intellectual, artistic, maybe even spiritual…what makes us a holistic dancer/ performer? What makes a dance work? And where lies the difference in the internal process of practicing improvisation and then staying connected to the space, to other dancers and to ourselves? How can I keep my relationship, my trust with my contact partner and have an awareness for an audience…?
As we dive into all of this, the basic work comes first…breathing, sensing, sharing the weight, exploring the space outside and within ourselves…maybe we find challenges in our bodies, what happens if we breath and move through them? I take my experience as a dancer, contacter and movement therapist (Feldenkrais based work) to travel with you through your bodies, space, time and force.
