The class will focus on the connection between creativity and imagination in the
It is based upon my experience with Ohad Naharin’s method and many
other ideas, concepts, exercises from my education, personal life and career and
philosophy as well.
We will work with analytical thought and physical feelings in different situations, as
experienced by the body. The aim is to enrich and improve the intuitive experience of
the dancer, using the body’s memory in creating a movement that leaves “new” traces
of memories in space, and practicing how to identify them and how to relate to them.
”During the class I speak constantly. Structured exercises, clear instructions for
improvisation, and stamina exercises for strengthening. The class has no official break.
The challenge of the class is to be in a constant state of body and mind connection. In
the moments of tiredness we understand it is a quality that we can connect to and
enjoy, being available for multi tasking challenges.”
