FABIAN THOMÉ

Intensive in Sala Sabil December 4th-6th 2021

BODY-MIND-SPACE

We will start by awakening the body with breathing exercises, working from the joints towards movement, with a scale of 0 to 10, to be able to flow and unify the breath with the movement in a natural way.

We will continue investigating and looking for different ways of using the ground, working on different qualities of movement, dynamics, space… to know the limits of the body and be able to express actions reaching different states.

In a second part, we will work mainly on different improvisation practices with a main concept, “Transformation”. We will use our three transforming instruments at the same time as transformed, body, mind and space.

“The body is the vehicle to be in the world, and the mind its creative power.” Thus, the body is transformed into a kind of message that is constantly written, read, transcribed, erased and rewritten. I am a body that thinks. Breaking the molds that limit us, both physically and mentally, will create our own path, which will reveal that living and constant transformation. A process from the unconscious to the conscious transformation. A Body, a Mind and a Space with characteristics and potential at our creative service.

The intensive is focused towards creating solos for each person who participates. For 2 days Fabian will share his tools with us, for the third day to rehearse and make showings.
