Acrobatics for Physical Theatre

4th- 5th May 2019

This workshop is aimed at physical performers who want to deepen in acrobatic techniques, both individually and collectively, and seek to add that “Risk” factor that some circus disciplines have. With this, they will obtain tools that will help them to enrich their creations.

In this intensive course, the base of acrobatic lifts, the search for inverted balance and “musicality” in ground acrobatics will be some of the parameters we will study before developing sequences and choreographic links with acrobatic content.

During this weekend intensive workshop we will work on:

– Strengthening and toning the body.
– Technical base and body position.
– Blocking, explosiveness, flexibility and elasticity in movements.
– Development of individual and collective trust.
– Musicality in ground acrobatics.
– Introduction to handstands.
– Acrobatic balance in pairs and small groups.
