Real-time operated physical language practices
In these training sessions we will engage with physical performance practice as a medium to simultaneously research, learn and perform. We will put emphasis on redefining the pre-conditions for our actions and as a consequence access particular forms of physical language. Each set of pre-conditions will nurture a new perception of movement and develop specific skills in the realm of physical performance. Most of the practices are of durational nature providing us with a time frame where transformation can occur.
