Workshop description

Isabelle will teach a Floor & Flow Class as a warm-up, drawing inspiration from various training methods this class will give you more awareness about the ease and efficiency of moving the body in and out of the floor. This floor-work based class is focused on the interconnection between our-selves, others and the space around us and how we can use natural forces to propel us through space. We search for tools to enhance sensory awareness through improvisation; building a deeper relation between ourselves and the floor through re-using energy to create a safe movement practice with a focus on centripetal and centrifugal force.

Following the class we will work together exploring concepts and tasks as well as learning repertoire material from her current choreographic work ‘FLIGHT MODE’ which will premiere June 18th/19th 2022 in Amsterdam. The themes explored will be the habitual rituals of the modern age; self-made routines as well as the need to switch off onto ‘Flight mode’ in order to tune into the true connection we so crave as human beings and not human-doings. Isabelle has taught dance at Henny Jurriens Studios, The International School (AICS), Amsterdam Dance Centre, Chassé Dance Studios (NL), Tanzzentrale Nuremberg (DE), LOD Dance Studios and Standouts Dance and Drama (NZ)’
