I believe that every human being really needs the freedom of authentic self-expression.
Finding your own voice by exploring the playful corners of improvisation is the exciting journey to make.
We may discover
balance, creativity, courage, acceptance and pleasure that can change our perspective and perception of self once and for all.
Feel like getting on board?


CONCEPT
I build my improvisation workshops on the inspirations taken from various techniques of percussive and contemporary dance.
The Heart and Sole series are the perfect choice for percussive dancers who are ready to meet together and enter
the
process full of observation, feeling and listening, with an aim to discover new ways of expression.
During our meetings a space full of acceptance is created, in which everyone can dare to cross the movement and sound comfort zone in a safe environment.
People, whose work influences me particularly, are: Rudolf Laban, Colin Dunne, Yaelle Azoulay, Antoine TurmineStefi Schmid, Joseph Wiggan, Max Pollak, Kieran Jordan.

STRUCTURE
I organise Heart & Sole as an open level workshop. Sometimes I suggest creating 2 groups: BASHFULS and DOCS. The workshop is divided into 3 parts:
MOOD CREATING
covers warm-up for the body and brain, getting the group together and time for accommodation to the space and the people.

EXPLORING
depending on the theme, contains working with such concepts as body, effort, space, shape, phrasing and relationships. We use individual, pair or group work, exercises vary from focused and meditative like to social, playful and a bit crazy.
DIGESTING
means recaps, talks, Q&As, feedback, spontaneous jam session.

MEET THE MUSICIAN
I lead the workshops with or without musician. Still I recommend of course the first option, which allows you to create the most authentic experience and brings you joy of deeper communication.
