Floor Trips/ Breakdance – Petr Ochvat
Floor Dance/Breakdance Dance
Leitung: Petr Ochvat
The class will start with very easy – verbally guided movement sequences to make us relaxed, sensitive and ready to pay attention to the smallest details of our actions. Then we move on to long and slow exploration trips related to the contact with the floor. Our “trip themes” will be lower back, upper back, knee level, head and shoulders and other topics of which some are inspired by breakdance. The aim of the class is to use floor as a partner for a dialog and for performance of diverse movement options both formal and dynamical. The word “trip” stands for an open, goalless and preferably joyful laboratory that stimulates learning process alongside.
