If you would like to know how to use your energy more effectively, this 4-day, 12-hour exclusive workshop is for you!
Senior Teacher Countertechnique and OBOC faculty member Niharika Senapati will share her love for space, exploring the relation between tension, weight distribution and falling, and how to find and sustain effective use of energy and momentum in dancing (also in small spaces!).
Departing from exploring the use of energy in the body, you will be introduced to hands-on tools from the Countertechnique Toolbox which will help increase awareness of the physics happening in your dancing. After working in an improvisation setting, you will transport these findings to a full Countertechnique class in each of the sessions.
Throughout the workshop there will be time to ask questions, unpack confusions and share experiences.
Niharika Senapati has been working as a dancer with Chunky Move/Anouk van Dijk between 2012 - 2018 and works as Anouk's choreographic assistant internationally. Niharika has an active independent performance practice and composes her own music.
Maximum participants per workshop: 25. Participants are accepted on a first come first serve basis.
This is a workshop series, which means the workshop is designed for participants who can attend all sessions in the workshop; you're not able to register for individual sessions.
This workshop is tailored to small spaces and open for professional dancers and senior dance students.
