Morning Class – a Playground
In a gentle and efficient way, participants are introduced to ease, strength and clarity in the alignment of the body in space and openness in movement. In this class, open to all bodies and levels, organic movement phrases are developed that primarily explore weight shifts and explore forces acting on the body. The goal is to find joy in movement and playfulness in the moment.
The class will be led by an internationally active choreographer, filmmaker and dance educator from Iran. She has received international recognition and numerous awards, especially for her cinematic works. Her works have been described by festival juries as rebellious, creative, inspiring, unbearably elegant and touching, emblematic and poignant, empowering to women, and nurtured by clarity and an extraordinary ambition. Additionally, she has choreographed a number of solo performances and works as a dancer with choreographers nationally and internationally, currently with renowned artist Yoshiko Chuma and her company The School of Hard Knocks.
