Description of the activity

Catching limits

'Catching limits' is the name of the company's most prominent contemporary dance workshop taught by Nadine Gerspacher. It is aimed at dancers, circus artists and actors of advanced / professional level. The class consists of exercises to awaken the body and raise awareness about the physical instrument in its entirety. We focus on breathing, joints, muscle tone, and stability to improve physical strength. Nadine invites participants to participate in technical exercises, including floor work, games, and complex composition phrases. Participants learn to activate and anchor their core to optimally experience freedom of movement. Duet work, guided improvisations, and drama assignments underline class activities to support play and creativity in movement and expression.
