Workshop Baladi (FR)
When in an unconscious state, the body naturally resorts to patterns of movement it already knows.
Lesser instincts go to work and unnecessary tensions naturally come into the body. My job is to
carefully and consciously have the dancer identify and remove these tensions one by one in order
to create a body that can conduct the dialogue with gravity in the most straightforward and unaffected way.
