For me, understanding my own body through imagination is the building block of training. Thanks to imagination we can discover various movement qualities and principlesin our body, find specific dynamics and, in particular, logic. I have been developing a system for years the aim of which is to reach maximum movement capacity of our body without excessive muscle tension and stress. I want to find out how to achieve physical performance in an “economical” way. Training develops plasticity, musicality, coordination, capacity to react to incentivesand impulses. We learn to listen to our own intuition and perceive our surroundings. All these principles are the more important in partnering where feeling the partner and trusting him totally leads to a perfect harmony. Thanks to understanding physical relations, partnering may become a logical and powerful means of communication. Balance limits, manipulations and risk shift the dance onto a magical level.” Lenka Vagnerová
The workshop focuseson the application of these principles in various situations and exercises. We will be using our imagination and creative potential for the execution of thegiven tasks. We will focus on the individual and partners´ work, learn fragments from the repertoire of Lenka Vagnerová & Company and search for the possibilities and limits of physical and mental perception of dance. We will be asking ourselves what does dance mean to us, what is so attractive about it, what role does a physical action and dance play when communicating an idea or creating a theatrical situation.
