“You cannot change something unless you know what you are doing.” -- Moshe Feldenkrais
How to start? What is material? How to use improvisation /scoring? What to set? What to leave open?

The objective of this workshop is to set participants free from the notion of originality as something that did not exist before. It will introduce ways of getting away from the planned, comfortable and familiar in dance making. Four three-hour sessions are meant to unveil and develop existing ideas and motions brought to the class by participants, and help them address some of the questions regarding their own creative process.

The workshop focuses on developing conscious presence while improvising in performance; connecting technique to composition and improving skills in this area; exploring tools useful in developing and crafting the work. Attention will be given to creating structures for dance; generating movement material, editing and deconstructing it; relationships between composition and improvisation; and introducing elements of chance. Each session starts with a guided physical warm up that opens the senses, stirs up imagination and heightens physical and mental awareness and exploration of body systems that then leads to exploration and ultimately to composition.
