ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

 

Step into the universe of EYAS Dance Project and elevate your creativity at our 5 day EYAS Intensive LAB. Harness creative tools for your interpretation, improvisation and creation, while unleashing the pleasure of dancing.

Each day begins with a class where we dive into the framework of Sensorial Improvisation. Using rich imagery and deep listening to the body, we go beyond our habits to discover new tools and unleash our imagination. We then build on the research in EYAS repertory sessions taught by members of the company, followed by choreographic LAB sessions, where we cultivate our inner creator and explore choreography and composition.

On Friday we will wrap up the week with a session of “Dance as a door to trance”, to open our senses. The session will be led by artists Sybila Gutiérrez and Itxa Sai (Venérea collective), followed by a final live jam session together with DJ Itxa Sai.

Our goal at UNFOLD is to mentor dancers in a motivating environment, to create meaningful experiences for them while honing their creativity and confidence for the ever demanding and transforming professional dance world, where dancers are more often co-creators.

With years of expertise as creators and teachers, we aim to share our experience and fantasy, guiding dancers to dive into a multilayered creative world, expanding horizons and harnessing creative tools to integrate in their dancing, research and creations.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to accelerate your transformation.
