16th till 20th of march 2020
Choreographic creation workshop
Duration 10 hours (divided in 5 sessions of 120 min)
Workshop oriented to professional dancers and students on development with basic improvisation knowledge, where the genuine visual, physical and cognitive system "Sphere System" created by the director Fernando Domínguez is implied, which is an instrument of creation of the choreographic pieces of the FDR Dance Theater repertory.
The workshop begins with the visualization of the spherical body and the new physical structure that the system proposes to represent the "new body". The use of spheres in different dimensions are very peculiar on this process.
Based on this, we work with specific dynamics and improvisation of movement for creation of choreographic material.
