Training – Contemporary Dance with Kira Kirsch


Training – Contemporary Dance with Kira Kirsch

Sunday, 4.3. I 10h15 – 11h45 I Studio 9

What does an authentic game with gravity look like? Does it exist? What is potential energy and where is it located? How much resistance and letting go do we need? What about falling up, and how small can a micro fall be? These and other questions concerning falling are the subjects of this training, which invites participants to surrender, pretend, beat or meet gravity – who is sometimes a beast and sometimes a magical wizard. The matter of falling can be feared or harnessed into making movement effortless. We will work on disarming our fear and cultivating falling as a primary impulse for movement development and phrase work. We will transform falling into an overall filter through which we perceive our anatomy and structure. You can expect lively contact between theory and practice, hands on work, experimenting, movement research and falling as dancing.
