As a multidisciplinary mover, Aneta would like to share with you some examples and insights into her training which helped her to create a body able to adapt to various physical challenges and movement stimulus.

Aneta will introduce students to the results of many years worth of movement research between capoeira, her own practice and her training as a professional dancer.
During workshops, she prioritiesan ethical and individual approach to the students and supportive group dynamic that’s why the upcoming training has limited spaces available.

MOVEMENT APPROACH:

This workshop is the result of over 16 years of research and physical practice within many different movement cultures. Using mediums such as Soft Acrobatics, Floor Work, Qi Gong, Release Technique, Flying Low, Contemporary Dance, Contact Improvisation and some Capoeira concepts of playfulness and resilient body.

Aneta would like to explore the body in the relation to self, others and the concepts of internal and external space. We will investigate ways to incorporate the total physical awareness necessary for Capoeira, whose roots partly lie in the art of fighting, into the more meditative world of release technique.

The aim is to introduce the possibility of building soft transitions between different movement forms and between different movement dynamics. We will be looking at the importance of breathing, physical and internal space, mental preparation, the psychosomatic system and the anatomy to search for the most effective way to use the body in specific movement tasks, flow and movement sequences.

(not previous experience required, suitable for everyone with regular physical practice)
