Event Description

Spirals: Physical movement is a constant dialogue with gravity. The use of spiral trajectories help to deal with it in a more efficient way. Coincidentally this form of movement can be observed in water dynamics and in living organisms. In this way, the practice and search for fluidity and spiral dynamics can be a path to arrive to our own organic movement.

The spiral structure will be translated practically and metaphorically into different levels, establishing cross-references and multiple associations.
In a physical level we will use common elements of Tango, Martial Arts, Contact Improvisation that relate to it. It will also be translated into other spheres: as a way of structuring an improvisation or a movement through repetition and transformation.
Through this focused creative work we hope to access a deeper insight into ourselves, our partners and our creative expressions.
