PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAM CONTEMPORARY DANCE

3 Oct 2022 - 22 Jun 2023.

 MONDAY to THURSDAY / 09:30 - 14:30 h.

THE JORNEY

 

 

The first trimester is focused on the concept of emptiness. The objective is to expand the knowledge of our body-mind through the understanding and the embodiment of the anatomical and biomechanical principles of movement. We´ll focus on the developing of the most basic thinking skill: Observation, in the wide sense of the word. The subjects Structural Body work and Somatic Techniques will be essential for this beginning.

The second trimester is focused on getting a deeper and wider understanding of the concept’s technique and physical condition.  We´ll go into a detailed movement analysis and in-depth study of joint anatomy and physiology through movement. And we´ll gentle push our boundaries in order to expand the potential of our bodies and minds. The subject Acrobatics / Partnering will help us in this mission.

The third trimester will be the moment to connect and relate the knowledge acquired, in order to get a global understanding of movement, in a general and also in a personal way. Will be the time to be especially playful and creative, and let our body and mind express itself to find a deeper understanding of our personal language. Contact Improvisation will help us.

MONTHLY PERFORMANCE

Once a month we´ll have our open stage to share our works in progress to an audience.

MAIN CONTENTS

 

PHYSICAL / MENTAL TRAINING

We are committed to a way of conceiving physical and mental preparation that focuses on the concepts of balance and globality. Our methodology incorporates the latest knowledge on anatomy and biomechanics, muscle chains and fascial system, understanding the fascia as a support organ and as a tissue that manages structural tensegrity and connectivity between systems.

 

TECHNIQUE

We approach the work of technique through the study and exploration of the movement principles and biomechanics. Embodying anatomy and biomechanics will be crucial in this process. Phrases and movement sequences will be just a part of the technical work.

PERFORMANCE / CREATION

We consider it essential to offer comprehensive and quality education for future performing arts professionals, not only as performers but also as creators, meeting the needs of this moment of paradigm shift in the performing arts. Subjects such as improvisation, composition, choreography and creation belong to this block.

DISCIPLINES

TECHNIQUES

RELEASE / FLOORWORK

SOMATIC TECHNIQUES / STRUCTURAL BODY WORK

ACROBATICS / PARTNERING

CONTACT IMPROVISATION

PRÁCTICAS ESCÉNICAS

IMPROVISATION / COMPOSITION

LABORATORY CHOREOGRAPHY & CREATION

RELEASE / FLOORWORK

A study of human movement potential

TEACHER: MIGUEL ÁNGEL PUNZANO

HOURS TOTAL: 144

Release and floorwork will be the main base of the work. We understand release not as a simple technique, but as a movement paradigm the permeates all the subjets of the program.

Floorwork will be also a very important task, not reduced as learning floor movement phrases, but as a part of the basic work in many disciplines like Structural Body Work or Somatic techniques and as a part of the physical-mental preparation for Acrobatics, Partnering or Contact Improvisation.

STRUCTURAL BODY WORK / SOMATIC TECHNIQUES

Experiencial anatomy and biomechanics. Embodiment.

TEACHER: MIGUEL ÁNGEL PUNZANO

HOURS TOTAL: 96

Structural Body Work will be a basic tool for the process of structural deconstruction during the first trimester. It brings together a series of manipulation techniques and protocols designed to open spaces, loosen tissues and releasing the bones rhythm in order to experience dynamic alignment. It will provide us with a deep understanding of anatomy and will introduce us to work through touch, a basic tool of our pedagogy.

Through the Somatic Techniques we´ll grow a deep body awareness and we´ll learn how to conect movement research and thinking skills, specially observation.

CHOREOGRAPHY & CREATION LAB

Physical-sensory training for creation

TEACHER: ANDREA AMOR

HOURS TOTAL: 108

The Laboratory space is an invitation to bring the practice of movement mechanics at the service of other levels of being (and their respective territories). It is a body journey through confluent spaces-territories; perception and discrimination, imagination and memory.

It is a space where we sensitize ourselves and activate a powerful and versatile physicality, train the role of observers, explore individual and collective processes.

We seek emancipated learning from which to share our revelations and question our knowledge.

The course itinerary is designed from a non-linear perspective; We will use various concepts as starting points that will be revisited and approached from different points of view.

ACROBATICS

Technical skills from gymnastics and circus acrobatics.

TEACHER: MIGUEL ÁNGEL PUNZANO

HOURS TOTAL: 96

 

This subject deals with the practice of acrobatics based on the technique of sports gymnastics and circus acrobatics, turned into the specific needs of dance.

We will learn to carry out a specific physical and mental preparation for acrobatics. We will acquire acrobatic skills through technical learning progressions. We will always work with assistance protocols as a way to guarantee safety and autonomy in practice.

PARTNERING

Movement skills for Partnerinf from Martial Arts aproach

TEACHER: MIGUEL ÁNGEL PUNZANO

HOURS TOTAL: 96

A research of physical laws and the movement principles through touch. This subject will provide us with skills for the practice of body-to-body dance.

We will work from some fundamentals of martial arts such as kuzushi (imbalance) and Tai Sabaki (traveling) and technical elements of judo (supports, grabs, falls, projections and flights). This subject will also provide us with a solid technical base to enjoy and deepen the practice of Contact Improvisation.

CONTACT IMPROVISACIÓN

Movement improvisation trough touch.

TEACHER: MIGUEL ÁNGEL PUNZANO

HOURS: TOTAL: 96

This subject will allow us to deepen our sense of touch and explore our movement technical skills in a context of body contact and improvised practice.

CI is a discipline in which physical contact provides a starting point for the exploration of movement through improvisation. Steve Paxton and Nancy Stark Smith are considered the creators of this dance form that has its origins in New York in the 1970s. We will approach this discipline based on the “Architectures in the Air” methodology developed by Miguel Ángel Punzano

IMPROVISATION / COMPOSITION

The art of composing from dance improvisation

TEACHER: LIBERTAD POZO

HOURS TOTAL: 108

This will be a space where we will practice the art of composing at the time of dance/improvisation. A proposal that will start from different sources of inspiration as starting points for creation.

We will connect with our daily lives to develop our own individual and collective body language, approaching the task from the role of dancer/maker.

We question the proposal from a critical and constructive point of view in order to continue discovering, exploring, playing, risking and, above all, enjoying our bodies in movement. We will delve into the art of formulating questions to generate improvisation guidelines: the process as questioning and reflection of the proposal (Critical Response Process, Liz Lerman).

Above all, it is a place to let our creativity and imagination surprise us. A moment to travel to unknown places where we can activate our individual and group intuition.
