Andrius Katinas (Lithuania)

Can Less be More?

The class is focusing on the most simple but fundamental patterns of motion and patterns of bodily awareness. It has an aim to increase ergonomics of motion and fully utilize bodily knowledge one already has.

Structure of 90 min session, in peculiar way combines ideas of warm up, technique and improvisation. Class starts with simple exercises revising body aliment and awareness of the space and then develops to a strictly framed improvisation set, which leads to vital motion using as less unnecessary muscle power as possible.
