Rachel Erdos will be at Kinitiras as a guest artist from 13 until 16 of July 2019. She will give a four-days intensive movement workshop.
Rachel’s workshops encourage the participants to find their own creative voice and movement material. Based around choreographic tools, improvisation and contact work the participants explore a theme and together with Rachel explore and discover their potential trying out many different creative ideas. Any one can create movement material and move and Rachel’s workshops encourage just that.
This intense 4 day workshop gives participants an insight into how Rachel works in the studio with her dancers, when working and researching a new piece. It is a good chance to challenge oneself physically, creatively and emotionally. This workshop will involve a combination of movement and text and is suitable for performers of all levels.
