Igli MEZINI leads a physical and playful technique class that challenges the individual and coordinates the collective group. Together we will build the skills and awareness to move with speed and efficiency. The aim is to alternate between arches and spirals of the body in all directions possibly imagined. We will focus on creative tasks to discover our body using tools for composition which will be introduced integrating movement, spatial and rhythmic awareness. The class utilizes simple movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and the release of energy throughout the body in order to activate the relationship between the center and the joints, moving in and out of the ground more efficiently by maintaining a centered state.
