Flying Low is a dance technique developed by Venezuelan dance artist David Zambrano. It’s main focus is the dancer’s relationship with the floor. Passing Through is a complex system of spontaneous composition based on collective leadership, interconnection and infinite possible pathways in space. In this workshop Lucia will introduce the participants to the key elements of these movement approaches.
The workshop builds up from gentle exercises which examine the natural spiral patterns within the body and develops into more energetic and expansive sequences. We will concentrate on pathways and use of energy as opposed to strict forms.
While aiming for speed in our movement we will also search to maintain a relaxed, easy body and acute awareness to our surroundings. Groundedness, efficiency of movement, practicality, open awareness and group dynamics are important elements at play in this movement training. This is an energetic workshop exploring the mechanics of the body, group consciousness and decision making.
Through a combination of performance platforms, residency opportunities, master classes, talks and lectures, Dance Limerick will advocate for artistic dialogue and exchange. In collaboration with dance artists across a range of practices, Dance Limerick will promote the creation of new and innovative work and will devise programmes of access, engagement and participation for the wider public.
Based at the premises of the former Daghdha Dance Company, Dance Limerick houses offices and a fully equipped studio space along with a separate performance venue known as the Daghda Space
