Since the workshop of Jonathan Burrows and Bojana Cvejić, that was supposed to take to place at this period, had to be postponed to spring 2022, we would like to introduce you to the dancer and choreographer Lali Ayguadé from Barcelona. Lali has been nominated for the “Exceptional Dancer” and “Best Creator” categories at the London Critics’ Awards, and was nominated as “Best Dancer” for the Recomana Critics’ Awards in Barcelona. She starred in the short film Timecode, which won the 2016 Palme d’Or at the Festival de Cannes and was nominated for an Oscar, a. o. We hope that dancing with her will bring you a lot of joy!
In this morning practice the objective will be to learn how to use the floor when moving, emphasizing the work on the feet as a base and a support for the movement. Through phrases and improvisations, we will learn how to identify where the weight is and where to find the freedom in our movements. Also studying rhythm and voice, we will investigate how we can reach a theatrical physicality.
