18th November: Helga Deasy

This class focuses on exploration, play and connection, with the aim to foster bodily awareness, to find expressivity and to develop creative skills.
It is informed by a choreological approach, which is the contemporary development of Rudolf Laban’s principles for the performing arts.
We will take time to connect with the body and our breath as a movement source.

Drawing from the research process behind the making of Helga’s recent performance work ‘State of Flux’ we will explore Laban’s motion factor flow and the effort actions of floating, slashing and flicking. Guided by imagery we will discover a range of movement qualities and play with them in a structured improvisation framework.
The class will conclude with a flowing sequence which combines the previously explored movement elements.
