The class offers a series of «drills for skills» – basic work that gets you warm and checks
balance, mobility and coordination through practical exercises, simple floor-work and
footwork in short phrases. The goal of my classes is to practice, find and define tools that
helps us increase the amounts of habits in our bodies – materials that are deeply rooted
and therefore readily available for us when entering artistic processes. I will share both the drills themselves, and the thoughts and strategies they are based on – encouraging
whoever joins the class to find a way of working that sparks joy and motivation.
In the class I draw on knowledge from physiotherapists that have helped me reduce, heal
and avoid injury, different martial arts (specifically; Jiu-jitsu, Taekwondo and Wing Tsuen) that have given me a practical way to enter complex physical material, and
choreographers such as David Zambrano who taught me how to go in and out of the
floor. Furthermore, I am inspired by different types of European folk-dance and styles
stemming from the African diaspora such as Chicago footwork and house.
The class is mainly set materials, with moments of more open exploration.
