Contents:

– Physical and mental energy and relationship mind and body

The appropriate use of the floor and the force of gravity become an instrument to aquire knowledge of the center of the body and its connections with the periphery.

Motion and visualization in the use of the skeleton and the deep muscles, looking better motor organization with minimal effort.The work starts from simple patterns of movement that grow up to become more complex sequences .

Much importance is given to ” being present ” in the movement . This is accomplished by the use of vision and sensory perception.

During the Choreographic Laboratory uses several elements of improvisation led to further exploration of movement and explore the concept of presence , relationship with space , with time and with others.
