We will focus the technical approach on the extremities, as a more simple and probably most clear way to understand the potential of generating movement from a distant point and how that possibly affects or put in motion a much longer spectrum of our whole system. From the horizontal to the vertical, from down to up, the process of the class will use as well the notions of weight, contact surfaces and precarious balance as tools to use gravity to move. Through a carefully designed technical exercises, we will progressively build a state where the body will be able to reorient, readdress and consciously master the different decisions and paths the body in motion can take. “Sequencing through” propose us to experience a constant flow of conscious relation with our own bodies and the space (or bodies) surrounding us.
