Flying Low and Passing Through
After having studied for years with David Zambrano and his students, I joined EXIN last September, the intensive month of Flying Low and Passing Through training with David Zambrano in Corfu. For me Flying Low and Passing Through have become my main technical background from which I learned a lot about pathways, the use of space, entering the floor, being grounded, speed, precision and connection as a group. Flying Low and Passing Through are beneficial as a dance technique as well as a social game for any body who likes to move. The way of connecting people as a group and exchanging ideas and motivation with each other is a very strong line in David Zambrano’s teaching method and this I would like to continue and share with the participants from this training. This will be a dynamic and physically very active class. Please bring a t-shirt that covers the shoulders, long pants and a long sleeves shirt. We will be sliding, rolling, turning and constantly going into the floor and out of the floor while gathering and sending. We will sweat, train and share some intense energies.
What interests me as a dancer and artist is how I can fully support an idea and become different things and keep on learning from many areas. That’s why I have trained in many different fields, from flying low to capoeira, from parkour to theatre, as well as different approaches to improvisation. Some of my biggest influences were and still are Edivaldo Ernesto, Judith Sánchez Ruíz, David Zambrano, Julyen Hamilton, Martin Kilvady and Peter Jasko a. o. Yoga and meditation are a consistent part in my own daily practice. I have made my own education by following teachers, working intensely on certain qualities and subjects.
Through that I am capable and experienced in motivating myself and others to keep on going and find solutions, as I needed to learn how to work efficiently and economically as I financed my training myself and had to organize everything without the frame of a given schedule like a fixed school. This intrinsic motivation and fire is what I aim to inspire my students with as well.
This training runs from 4 until 15 November 2019.
