(Workshop L'animal Tardor (Autumn) )L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà) From 09/10/2012 to 13/10/2012 David Zambrano We will be working toward defining a shared but invisible space punctuated by "pathways", the group of dancers creates its own dynamic, flexible and complex language without needing to designate a leader. Several bodies interact spontaneously and harmoniously, as though a single conscience were guiding them.
The passing through takes students through various exercises to manifest Zambrano's philosophy that movement needs no leader in creation. The students will create dynamics that will be flexible and complex at the same time, getting the group to fit tight together, yet always keeping doors open for the unpredictable. The group moves constantly, transforming the environment of the dance. The students work to see the room full of pathways – infinite pathways passing through the walls, the floor, the bodies. These pathways go in any direction and are filled with curves, large medium and small curves. Thus the passing through is created into a spontaneous composition. When the group becomes one mind, it can never get lost, it is always going some where. There is never one person leading or following, every one is leading or following, depending on the situation. The whole group is constantly traveling.
This workshop is very physical. Whoever wants to take it, she/he must know that we are moving our thoughts all day.
When David Zambrano began his professional career at the age of 21, he threw himself into it with such total dedication that he suffered an injury that left him unable to stand for six months. Instead of abandoning his career as a dancer, he made use of this experience and developed a technique that he now teaches all over the world, the Low Flying Technique. Zambrano believes in improvisation as an art form and for him choreography is a vehicle to develop this and take it further.
