IMPROVISATION & INSTANT COMPOSITION / MORNING CLASSES IN URBANRAUM
A series of classes of improvisation and instant composition, a space for playfully exploring our multi-layered awareness as movers, performers and creative individuals. The research of the body and its possibilities for effortless, intelligent, inhabited, well-timed actions is accompanied by the activation of spatial awareness, intuition and imagination, a sense of radiance that communicates through and beyond the physical body. A field of sharpened, clear presence and the established 'group mind' naturally lead us to the creation of instant composition and choreography. This training is open for anyone regardless of experience, but experienced and professional movers / performers / artists of different disciplines are welcome too.
This open level session offers a space to explore your awareness, creativity and embodied expression in a playful manner; diving into sensing, feeling, being present and instinctive. Starting from awakening our senses and warming up the body we will proceed into exercises of listening. By tuning into ourselves, the group and the space we access the creative process and allow our bodies to move. We are looking for ways to connect to our natural, personal expression and discover a way to communicate through our bodies, movement and energy.
In each session we will work with different themes and approach them in a playful way through individual research, group work and partnering. Throughout the class we visit different places, energy levels and states of being through the movement - reflecting the different colors of life itself. The work will lead us to creating little movement compositions, stories in the space, which we will participate and observe.
"You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.“ Plato

"In our fast-paced lives we easily get caught up in our thoughts and lose the connection to our body and lose our state of flow as a consequence. Annukka's classes are one of the best remedies to the feeling of stuckness I've encountered so far. She has always succeeded in bringing me from a state of separation to a state of deep connectedness. In that state the arduous tasks in life transform into pleasant challenges. Annukka has a very unique talent of holding space and co-creating a strong group field that allows you to connect with yourself and those around you." Tessa
PROFESSIONAL TRAINING - IMPROVISATION & INSTANT COMPOSITION:
This improvisation based training offers a space to explore the multi-faceted awareness of a dancer/ performer in a holistic, playful manner. A physical warm-up leads us into an exploration of movement qualities, dynamics, interaction and listening through individual research, group work and partnering. The work invites us to inhabit and to challenge our personal, authentic qualities, gradually building towards instant composition, little “stories” in space, which we will participate and observe. All these tasks serve as instruments to reach a certain field where our personal presence, with its own specific language, is engaged and allowed to express itself.
