ANIMAL INSTINCT 1920 1080 Nový priestor


Animal instinct is an ongoing movement research. The hardcore of this practice is to gain freedom in motion. By moving away from any ideology, style or form, we can reexamine our physical abilities with fresh eyes. The work refers to information from various movement disciplines (contact improvisation, martial arts, somatic practices & contemporary dance) and offers a wide spectrum of tools to study our body, to understand movement and communicate physically. 

Main study topics:

Body preparation (warm-up/cool-down) 
Physical Adaptation 
Flexibility and movement fluidity 
Undulation and spiral patterns 
Muscle tonus 
Hands as feet and feet as hands 
Reflexive awareness 
Structural limitations & manipulation 
Freedom in expression 
The work passes through various constellations (solo, duet or group work), studying the never ending possibilities that occur in dynamic improvisations.
