Guy Nader: Falling & Rolling

Workshop for professionals / 16th Dance & Non-Verbal Theatre Festival

The classes are based on a physical and powerful floorwork, entering and leaving the ground. We will be using movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and release of energy throughout the body to activate the relationship between the centre and limbs. We will focus on the bone structure that will help improve the physical perception and awareness, exploring the main laws of physics: cohesion and expansion, elements from the flying low technique. Within this range we will study various ways to roll in all directions "Falling and Rolling", dropping and lifting smoothly and quickly by keeping a low and strong centre. The movement material is mainly based on floorwork and low squat positions. We will explore various movement possibilities, developing movement sequences in all levels. We will also investigate and focus on understanding the anatomy of the locomotor system, because without this knowledge, it can cause unnecessary loss of energy. We will search on the use of body weight, flexibility, strength and explore the different energy levels and also the knowledge of our limits. In this training we will do special exercises to prepare for this form of physically demanding movement.
