Icarian games: Technique, research and mobilization
A technical training will be offered alongside with mobilisation and research exercises. Basics and pure technique will be explored equally as a choreographic work of integrating movement in the lifts. In fact, we are interested in melting dance and Icarian games, notably how to include a floor work in the going up and down of the icarian, how to invert the relationship between porter and flyer, how to find a freedom of movement in a technique that can sometimes be stiff and gymnastic. We like to see the teaching of Icarian games in a similar perspective as teaching dance, without neglecting the technique that is inherent to Icarian games. In a group context, we also like to suggest lifts, passing through and transfer exercises that incorporates many duos.
