Embracing Space & Beyond Aesthetics
‘Into the earth and out of the earth, gathering and sending’ – using those classic principles of Flying Low, I added my own flavour to it and generated my own floorwork style that I named Embracing Space. The class combines David Zambrano’s approach with my own input and the experiences I gathered through other movement forms (like Yoga and Capoeira) and my studies of Sport Science and Art Therapy (looking at the mind and body from a more scientific viewpoint). We learn how to push the floor, play with our weight, use the body’s biodynamics in favour of our dance, and also how to approach the floor in a non-violent way. My goal and passion are – similar to Flying Low – to get to a level of speed in which our body moves instinctively, so we do not need to think with our brains too much but rather master a certain level so that we can give it all of our intentions and emotions.
In Beyond Aesthetics, our goal is to go beyond the external appearance of movements, understanding why we move and what drives us. By forging a deep connection with our body, we learn to trust it, not through mental control, but by embodying movements and letting the body flow. These principles apply to all movement qualities, whether sharp, flowing, or gentle.
‘My goal is to train dancers for everyday life while nurturing their curiosity and passion for art. I have taught across Europe, including Freiburg, Tanzfabrik Berlin, Switzerland, Tanzquartier Wien, Hannover, Leipzig, and Hamburg. I am pursuing a master’s degree in art therapy and a Bachelor’s in sport science with a sport psychology focus. My choreography delves into psychology, the mind, and communication, and in 2021, I presented my solo Finding (a) truth in Vienna.’
