Summer Course Modern Contemporary

With Rosa Allessie

She is a wild child
With a gypsy soul
That dances with the stars
She has a free spirit
A reckless mind and a rebel heart
That isn’t meant to be tamed
Love her wild and
You will never loose her

We will find freedom within ourselves and our dancing, shake of the locked-up feelings left from the last 1,5 years. Every day we will focus on another style, technique or research method of contemporary dance and create material that in the end of the week will result in a performance.

Day 1- Monday July 19th – Limón technique (fall and recovery and the interplay between weight and weightlessness)

Day 2 – Tuesday July 20th – Floorwork

Day 3 – Wednesday July 21th – Flying low & tricks (spiraling in and out of the floor, finding the middle level, combining jumps and turns with floorwork)

Day 4 – Thursday July 22th – Improv, Gaga, instant composition (finding your own flow, expression through movement alone and together)

Day 5 – Friday July 23th – Countertechnique (directing parts of the body away from each other in space)

& performance time! Somewhere on a beautiful spot in / around Leiden, I’m thinking dunes, beach, forest, something like that.

Mon-Fri from 20:00-22:00
