Irene Cioni is a dancer and choreographer with more than 15 years experience in dancing, creating, producing and collaborating in many dance and theatre projects, in London and all over the world. Irene’s class will explore some of the principles of the Flying Low and Passing Through technique. It is a very physical floor work class that focuses on the way we go into and out of the ground; followed by both group and couple exercises we explore how to cross the space and how we connect to the room and our classmates. We will practise running, spiralling, squatting and we will explore different pathways. We will play with both the tools you learn in the class and the tools you bring from your own experience, and the class will culminate in a final group improvisation.
Wednesday November 13 18.00 - 19.00
