Flying Low is a technique initiated by David Zambrano that uses simple movement patterns and principles (such as spiralling and alternating between expansion and cohesion) to dance our whole selves in, out and along the floor with speed, efficiency and pleasure.
Originally from Italy, Luca is a London-based dance artist and academic with over ten years of international experience in education, performance and choreography. Currently, Luca is a Studio Team member at Studio Wayne McGregor and Course Leader for the first 2-year accelerated degree in Dance at the University of Suffolk in partnership with Dance East.
His teaching portfolio includes Trinity Laban, The Place, DanceCity, Accademia Nazionale di Danza, The Scottish School of Contemporary Dance, The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Newcastle College and Northumbria University. As a performer, he collaborates with LîLa Dance, Fuora Dance Project, Dora Frankel Ensemble and Gruppo e-Motion. In 2015, he founded BARBERDANCE / lucabraccia&Co. and his works have been staged in China, Italy, Portugal and the UK. In 2018, Luca attended the Flying Low and Passing through intensive led by David Zambrano in Lagos (Portugal). With Leila McMillan and Julia Testa, he hosts and curates the first-ever Passing Through Jam series in London.
The class will focus on how improvisation tasks can allow for abstract forms of expression. Our interest is in how the body can express information otherwise not accessible in words, how obscured body language can communicate something tacit.
Classes will begin with mobilisation tasks, exploring isolations through the body, finding new pathways and rhythms and investigating tension as a means of expression. This will be followed by crossings aimed to develop the vocabulary available, offering ways in and out of the floor and exploring our connection to gravity.
The class will either end in a longer improvisational task based on communicating more specific situations through muscular tension (as used in our research for the work in progress ‘Facing North’ i.e. how we communicate fragility through shaking or lifelessness through tension) or with material, on top of which our explorations can be applied.
Bea’s artistic practice that will be explored has been influenced by artists such as Lali Ayguadé, Marina Mascarell and Michael Keegan-Dolan.
Theo’s artistic practice has been influenced by artists including Sita Ostheimer, Sofia Nappi and Ben Wright

This technique will teach you how to go into and out of the earth rapidly and efficiently. Based on the principle of the spiral, it encourages the practice of following pathways in a curve, enabling the whole body to travel down and up (or vice versa). Each participant will learn the foundations, with an emphasis simultaneously on their individual approach and their connection with the whole group. Once connected, we practise fast and with loud music.
Flying low is a technique initiated and developed by David Zambrano. Irene practises with him regularly at his Art Centre in Brussels. Her method of teaching this technique tries to be as true as possible to Zambrano’s original teachings. Focusing particularly on curves and spirals with Irene, you will become an expert in effortlessness and elegance.
