Cococo – what do we do?
In the beginning of the session the Movement Guide navigates the Dancers into researching the moving body, enabling improvisation within boundaries that constantly morph. Through verbal metaphors presented by the Movement Guide, the Dancers are encouraged to connect to sensations and to play with and enjoy a range of different physical states. Gradually the guidance fades, to allow the movement framework and the momentum of the group to grow with the aim of finding new ways to connect to groove and to the dancing body.
With no obligation to entertain, the DJ’s are free to expand the diversity of their selections to non-conventional rhythms and experiments in sound, using club music and “the club experience” as a reference point from which many different paths can be chosen.
We’re looking forward to a fluent exchange between all partakers!
