discovering the magic of moving through structure and space

We will begin with the formation of the ground, the structure of our skeleton system and explore possibilities of moving from imagination. then building into the relationships by moving with each other and space. Our individual inner spaces will articulate a moving architecture that will dance their way through the architectural space we are in.
Following the Bauhaus principle of experimentation and learning by doing, we will also explore some historical references from the Bauhaus to American contemporary dance (Anna Halprin, Merce Cunningham) through black mountain college and back to Europe and Germany through dance schools in the Netherlands and Brandenburg/Ponderosa.
