The use of Inhibition to create spontaneity: From stillness to moving

In these CL working sessions I invite you to experiment with the question “What does happen before action?” We work first on our own use and then help each other with the hands on work. We use inhibition and direction for creating space within to play with walking, stopping and everyday movements. By moving in the space, we also play with the awareness in relation to others. If you have experience in contemporary dance, you can take the moving also further in complexity, but you do not need previous experience in dance to attend.
