Out Of The Ground Intensive
Time & Location
About The Event
Over the 4 days we will work on technical skills, learn repertoire to pick apart, create, explore and fail together. Each day will begin with class which will focus on preparing the body for the afternoon experiments. Morning class will start with breath work, yoga and conditioning before moving onto technical crossings focusing on floor work, falling and moving upside down. During the afternoons we will focus on creative tasks focusing on musicality, performance and improvisation within a safe space where we can make mistakes whilst challenging our brains and bodies.
