Natalia Iwaniec

gaga/dancers

Gaga/dancers deepens dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures. The classes are built on the same principles as Gaga/people classes but also employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge. The layering of familiar skills with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well, unlocking the endlessness of possibilities. Dancers are guided to connect their effort to pleasure and to discover the virtue of silliness.

Florian Astraudo

Flo is packed with contemporary skills and an applied knowledge of classical techniques, a mover that combines explosivity and grace effortlessly. He is spreading love and joy, vibrancy and dynamism. After last year’s highly appreciated contemporary dance class, we are happy to have Florian back for the second edition. This year he will focus on two key elements: Jumping & Spinning! How can we approach the floor, extract power, keep the inertia, recycle energy? Using the framework of technical exercises, improvisation tasks and guided movement explorations, Flo will give you tools at hand for plenty of spinning and jumping practice!

LAB

The Laboratory Project

With our Laboratory Workshop we want to offer a space for research. Research that is not channeled into a fixed frame. Research that is not aiming at a result, a final state. The Lab situation allows you to join and contribute to a creative experiment where you can truly focus on the process. Keep your mind free from expectations and dive into the work.
For the DO Festival 2022 Lab we asked two very active creators to propose and facilitate one laboratory project each. As a participant of week 2 you can choose to join one of these two processes. 

Find out which project triggers you more! Click below to get to know more about the two Labs we offer this year at DO Festival.
