Maya M. Carroll. Embodying Time and Music

We are super thrilled to bring this very unique friend of Choroskinisirythmos, Maya M. Carroll, (Known from her collaborations with Julyen Hamilton, Batsheva Ensemble και Sasha Waltz & Guests), to make us dive into her creative dance world.

Embodying Time and Music / A 4 day intensive workshop taught by Maya M. Carroll

The dancing body moves in and through time, timing and tempo, through many listening layers. Our practice in this workshop is to consciously and physically dive into exploring these layers and deepen our sense of musicality.
Appreciating the dynamics inside our improvised compositions both linearly and atmospherically, and attentive to singular punctuation within a large continuum; the work aims to create a vibrant relationship between our movements and our perception of time.

The practice integrates touch, flow, articulation and momentum as guiding techniques. Following these gestures and their rhythms, we study and encounter the complementary, playful and urgent interplay between physical motion, music and dance.

The workshop is aimed for movers, dancers, musicians and performers who wish to engage with dancing, composing and creating pieces. Movement /dance background experience is required.
