LINEAR SYNTHESIS MOVEMENT DRAWING WORKSHOP WITH ARTISTS CONSTANTIN MALMOIRE & KEITY POOK
/ PÄRNU / SALZBURG / BIRMINGHAM - Centrala/
LINEAR SYNTHESIS translate automatic drawing through movement. Combination of Constantin Malmoire's graphic skills and performance skills of Keity Pook, will make people dance as they draw. In the first part of the workshop, participants are given tools and encouraged to explore and create their own style of lines. You are invited to interpret these lines through movement, with a diverse range from inner movements to outer movements. The main exercise starts from describing a movement within the body, from one part to another, and culminates in describing eventful trajectories in the space of the room. In the second part of the exercise, participants are invited to create their own alphabet, interpret it with a moment, then perform in solo or in groups. All this would be based on asemic writing.
RESEARCH ABOUT DEVELOPING BODY SENSITIVITY OF NON-DANCER CREATIVES
/ COVENTRY UNIVERSITY /
Through this research, which was a practical part of my teacher diploma thesis, I wished to introduce Contemporary Dance thinking and styles, but also develop my own personal teaching method. My research subjects were people from art and science studies (theatre, fine arts, chemistry, physics), and they all had not undergone professional studies in dance. In my research, I choose to teach body knowledge through different dance techniques and methods (dance elements in Creative Dance, individual movement research through structured improvisational tasks, Contact Improvisation, Floor Work techniques and ballet exercises). From the feedback of participants, I found out that through my methods, they developed their body memory, coordination, body sensitivity, senses to the touch, focus, and group unity. From my point of observations, I can affirm that their body sensitivity, cognition and knowledge developed broadly. Furthermore, we created piece MAGNETIC MOMENTS, which summed up our research process and was shown on 27 of May 2015 at Coventry University.
