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.
Based in London for the last 8.5 years, Julia Testas is a Brazilian graduate at Trinity Laban in MFA Creative Practice. Her research is around relationships and experiencing the present in photography, movement and performance. Amongst many professional names she encountered through her artistic life, she dances and invites you to play through movement, photography, performances, and images. She has been teaching Flying Low (by David Zambrano), Dissolving (her practice), and Organic Flow (by Jorge Itapuã).
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.
Jon is a london based performer. He graduated from the BA programme and MA Transitions dance company at Trinity Laban. Since then he worked as a freelance performer in a variety of theatre, site specific and conceptual work, collaborating with artists such as Leah Capaldi, Alice Anderson and Chloe Aliyanni. Alongside performance he is also a massage therapist.
This class will focus on skills for moving on the floor and upside with confidence and speed.
Drawing from contemporary dance techniques and elements from Capoeira we will move with flow, weight, spirals and momentum. The class will begin with yoga and conditioning exercises to prepare the body before focusing on various movements during crossings followed by either a phrase or improvisational tasks.
