Workshop descriptions

Dance workshop: “Encountering bodies”

The workshop offers different playful tools inspired by different practices such as aerial rope and body/space awareness, martial arts and partnering.
At the beginning of the session we will get to know our body through the relation we have with ourselves, the others and the space around us.
Through games in pairs where we can activate our senses and the inner playful child inside us. We will explore different ways of supporting others and let go of our own support. We will go back to us, our center and our breath, finishing the session with a relaxed mind and body, energized but calm.

Framing Effekt practice:
The idea of this class is to get into the Framing Effekt practice which consists of working in a group with a single rope. How to support others to make them jump, slide, or even fly in the air, using the weight of the others and the rope. The approach is about using the rope as a tool to put the bodies in motion, into the space and the air. Discovering the different playful tools of interconnection.
We will also work with the idea of manipulating the rope and using it as a juggling prop. What is possible to do with a rope without climbing it?

We will approach this workshop using following tools:

  • Counterbalances: Understanding the tension of the rope with the bodies and how this can bring you in a motion.
  • Loops: using the rope as an object to manipulate. Creating loops that we can throw to each other.
  • Chain reactions: How a single movement can affect the others around you. Staying true to the impulses you get from others and being aware of the impulses you give. It’s about listening to the people around you.

Aerial technics (Rope & Silks and Trapez & Hoop):

The objective is to optimize the technical language through the awareness of our center, and its positioning in the space. Among the different techniques to work on, the strength of the core will be emphasized as an enhancer of the swings/beats, the correct execution of suspensions, twisting techniques and the correct positioning of the body in different supports, balances and movements. After the technical work, we will seek to apply what we have learned in a work of „dynamically correct“ sequences (that is, the movement does not stop but flows and is a consequence of the previous one, it is not born for its own sake) within these we will also include the development of the tricks. We will work with rope and silks, we will apply conditioning.

Who can Participate:

The workshops are intended for practitioners of any circus discipline or those who have a body who can respond to the physical characteristics of the movement training (body awareness, physical condition and responsibility with the teaching-learning process).
Although the information can be better used when you already have some experiences, the level is not exclusive, the idea is to work the concepts and techniques from the base and to learn the methods we as a company use to create and develop content.
The workshops will be taught in English. There is someone who can speak (Swiss) German and can translate if needed, but you need to at least understand basic English to follow the classes.
The Workshops and our practice is aiming for people 16+.
