The name of my workshop is "Zero Space" and it is constructed to help the dancers to develop their Floor-work technique and their overall spatial awareness. My method is based on the fundamental ideas of Flying-Low which I have developed and enriched along with Counter technique and its principle idea of counter direction. My technique is designed to help the dancers learn how to harvest the energy created by consciously directing and counter directing parts of the body through space, as well as in relation towards the floor, helping them to travel bigger through space and to be quicker in and out of the floor. In the workshop I often transpose the same ideas into partnering and contact improvisation.
