Walter @ Tictac
Werkplaats Walter cureert zes spannende avonden op de 60 Days Workshop van David Zambrano en zijn Tictac Art Centre, fijne buur in Kuregem!
Op elk van die avonden gaan de muzikanten een improviserende dialoog aan met de dansers die de workshop meedoen.
Living legend David Zambrano turns 60 years old and it’s time for him to fulfil a most intimate dream: he will direct the longest intensive workshop ever organized in his whole life so far. But this is not a Flying Low or Passing Through, but a third love of his life – his passion for improvisation.
A 60 day workshop with 60 selected dancers. Participants shall expect no less than reaching the main core of the improvisation practice – exploration of solo and group dynamics, spontaneous composition, the shaping of clear dance material, commitment into the learning-while-doing approach, using one’s life experience to create images coming from each personal universe, the practice of how to perform any time in any mental state, get better understanding of time and space.
40 years of improvisation will be condensed into 10 weeks of whole-hearted transmission and sharing.
Dancers will get constant personal feedback from Zambrano, as they learn how to create instant pieces of dance on stage using the group as an audience. This workshop as a matter of fact is not any different from a live performance in itself – an improvised piece over the course of 60 days, performed by 60 dancers, directed by David Zambrano – becoming indeed one of the biggest and sexiest events of the contemporary dance world as we know it.
Join us in this unique and artistic journey!
