Daniel Abreu (ES) 17th - 19th July 2017

A top-class dancer and choreographer, who, in Madrid, set up his own dance group Cía, Daniel Abreu, is one of the leading personalities of the Spanish artistic scene and he cooperates with many ensembles across Europe. His workshop will focus on understanding and exploring movement. He will provide exercise as experience that will facilitate learning. He concentrates on feelings through which you will discover your body, understand and learn. From the ground up to the air!


"The first thing I would like to do when we meet for the first time is just learning your name and try to find out who you are through your voice, after that, we will see what comes up.

My aim will be to observe you  and to help you out with your needs. I will suggest you to move through the dance, what I see, as I see you, always from a tecnical and experimental point of view. I mean,  you will dance with all your body because this is the reason you will attend all these lessons and it would be great if you are able to attend the three days, it would be worth it for you, your mates and myself.

About myself just to say that I have been looking for new ways of teaching to discover new ways of movement. I believe in that one who is able to know its body, its emotions and to planify its actions in order to be able to know what to do with this and in the case the exterior affect all those plans, to be able to adapt the best possible its rol, as much as the daily life will allow us, otherwise to accept it as such.

With my proposal I will provide the exercice as experience, and this experience will give us the knowledge. Although the theoretical support exists, it fluctuates and presents itself according to the group. Theories are not true or false therefore do not establish truths but paths, from there we will walk.

Supports, directions and messages. Body, mind and emotion. It is all about feeling and through feeling we will discover, understand and learning. From the ground (I advise you to bring Kneepad with you) to go through the air."
