Professional Class: Eva Recacha
Eva’s class capitalises on her Choreographic and Choreological perspectives on movement. In her professional classes she uses these lenses, developing a distinctive style of teaching that places strong emphasis on both physical and compositional aspects of our dancing. The class prepares the dancers to work beyond mechanics by promoting an understanding and an active engagement through decision making with compositional aspects of our dancing. The class promotes dialogue and communication through movement as well as acknowledgement of the aesthetic impression of the overall dance scene (of which our input is one of many).
This week she will focus on exploring effort and rhythm in movement, creating moving partnerships based on rhythmic dialogues. The class will be based on exploratory tasks of an improvisational nature, with clear parameters to focus our practice. Eva’s class grows in pace and physicality, deeply rooting the body.
