Dioptre : improvisation for two environmentsat Festival Agricolodanse, Hameau de DAMIAS, Eourres (53) from June 8 through 10, 2012
Dance : Ephia
Contrabass : Benoit Cancoin
Air and water. And the thin surface which seperates the two: dipotre. We introduce a stick. Slowly. Bending time. Confusion. Inversion. Troubles with the distant near. Faraway vision touches me. Foreign bodies resonate. The hollow of the ear fills me with vibrations. Nature is artifice. All that is imagineable is real.
LE CORPS: SENS DEDANS DEHORS
Summer workshop intensive
Dedicated to the encounter of the body and the environment
Led by Ephia with the contrabass player Benoit Cancoin
1-10 July, 2012
le Plateau du Velay (43), France
Le Corps: SENS DEDANS DEHORS, summer intensive, is a dance workshop which develops the perception, imagination, and presence of the human body through physical experiences in nature. A drama dormant in the landscape reveals itself, lending us its instability, transforming our posture, our thoughts. We come into resonance with the place, the group, an object, a material. And so, the movement of our body becomes the movement of our consciousness, dissolving borders: inside and outside.
Djalma Primordial Science developed this physical training during four summer workshops from 2002 to 2006 in the desert wilderness of New Mexico. Since then, the research has continued in France with workshops in the gorges of the Tarn et Garronne (2008, 2009) and on the Plateau of Aubrac (2010). The 8th edition of this workshop will take place on the Plateau du Velay in the Haut-Loire area of France. For more detailed information see "workshops"
