Using concrete methodologies, the workshop covers basic principles of the performer’s craft such as: ethics (self-discipline and autonomy); preparation and readiness (warm-up of body-mind and presence); energetic aspects and techniques of the craft (the transformation of weight into energy, the dynamics of physical actions in time and space, the relationship with the ground, the relationship with the air, the use of the articulations and segmentation of the body, modulation of energy and the play between performers).
