ENERGETIC FLUID POWERFUL
TECHNIQUE & LANGUAGE

INTERIOR/ EXTERIOR ( INTERNAL/ EXTERNAL, INNER/OUTER, CENTRAL/PERIPHERAL, NUCLEUS/LIMITS, CORE/EDGE )
Our physical and mental self are constantly challenged in order to develop and evolve. Usually we resist change and try to follow our patterns, habits. What would happen if we allowed or even better invited these challenges into our personal space?
We will find ourselves with a very luscious, liquid open body
- a state of mind and being that shows availability,
that can read, take input, propose, give feedback, digest and translate.
Challenging floor work sequences and dynamic combinations invite our body to visit unknown places by breaking limits and developing adaptability.
BORDERLINES ( 5 ELEMENTS, DIVIDE-DIVERGE )
We usually see our body as one thing. It is different to take into account your self’s holistic existence and another thing to forget that it is made of multiple smaller segments. So what if we divided it, would we also conquer it?
By diverging your body you make it more available/approachable/accessible/contactable for yourself the others and the space.
5 Borderlines/ Elements emerge in IN/OUT practice:
1.sitting bones and heels
4.the arms (as an elongation/extension of the spine)
In/Out language asks of the mover to be mentally and physically engaged to the past and present experiences, and open up to the future possibilities. To play with the power of now and what we create in the moment, not to just reproduce what we know or have an preset idea of what to do. Through partnering work and improvisation we are encouraged to explore existing material, observe other moving bodies, transform this information and discover new ways of expressing ourselves through movement.
All elements and skills introduced at In/Out are available as instruments to play with and not necessarily stick to them, follow them or choose to include them.
This practice and technique functions as a research tool that gives us the opportunity to revisit old patterns, investigate familiar movements, apply new vocabulary and explore the fundamentals of the newly introduced elements.
Allowing us to translate emotions into movement through this exploration game!
