Dance-Theatre Company HUELLAS Argentina - Belgium is currently
residing at Bains::Connective February 9th - 29th in Brussels. This company
is directed by Sebastian Garcia Ferro and Carolina Mantovano Argentina and
co-founded by Christie Di Perna and Kristof Coenen Belgium; all of them dancers
and actors who are looking for a language that combines dance and theatre.
Their first production Huellas is a contemporary dance production that merges
a language of movement, acrobatic energy and contact sequences composed choreographically
by the dancers. Huellas 50 min is the outcome of this dance-theatre research
that penetrates the intimate space of dancers creating a dramatic and emotional
charge, the engine which they use to dance.
Huellas was previously selected by the Summer Studios Project, the Performing
Arts Research and Training Studios P.A.R.T.S/ Rosas in August 2003. It also
showed at several festivals in Argentina and in the rest of South America. During
February and March 2004, the company is on its second tour presenting the piece
in Brussels, Barcelona and Valencia.
It has the Institutional Support of the Cultural Affairs Department of the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Workshop of the Republic
of Argentina; and the Official Support of the Belgian Embassy in Argentina.
Dancing with the floor
Workshop - Contact Improvisation
Every time we dance, the floor supports us as a partner. On it we fall,
spin, jump and it is our receptor and trampolin towards a new dance. Our research
will be centered around this bond, recognizing acquired skills and opening ourselves
to new possibilities that may facilitate and deepen our own dance, by ourselves
and with others.
To guide all who are interested in knowing and researching the ways of the
Contact Improvisation, this course has three stages divided in 10 hours.
1 Bases of Contact Improvisation: Body and Spherical Space, Weight, Peripheral
Vision, Gravity, Touching Qualities.
2 Resources and technique skills: Reflexes, Spins, Falls, Inversions, Aerial
3 Improvisation Structures: With space, time, duets and trios.
4 Video documentaries: Contact since its starts to these days.
Throughout the development of these stages, we will explore our small dance
the way we align ourselves and perceive everything that happens in our organisms
to beat the strength of gravity, our own movement patterns, center to
periphery, periphery to center, active vision, listening with
our skin, paths and short cuts towards improvisation.
Previous knowledge is required in movement and dance techniques.
