Description of workshop
Freestyle Workshop – sharing tools to work on exploring movement.
Comics will work on some freestyle tools that you can use on exploring / finding: directions, levels, awareness and presence in your movement. He’s main focus is to help find individuality and personality qualities in a playful way and also in a social environment.
The workshop is a collaboration between Dans Sørøst-Norge / Bærum Kulturhus and PRODA and is arranged in connection with Camilla Tellefsen’s performance Lucy at Bærum Kulturhus Friday 10th and Saturday 11th February.
Claúdio Fernandes aka “COMICS” is one of the seven dancers in Lucy.
Lucy thematizes family, belonging and identity. Together with her seven dancers, choreographer Camilla Tellefsen starts from experiences, feelings, relationships and embodies these encounters.
The idea of community is propagated in the process with dancers, and each one brings their own expression into the work. The aesthetics of street dance are drawn into a cross-genre, tender, powerful and evocative all-evening performance.
Dance as an art form and social gathering place is distinctive in its ability to include people across languages, cultures and backgrounds. The street and club dance environment in particular shows a unique ability for community, which means that the thematic red line in «Lucy» is experienced as a natural extension of these art forms.
