Morning classes - ORIGEN

Getting closer to the floor it's getting closer to the Earth, ORIGEN is a physical, dynamic and mental training/research experience directed by Paco Ziel, where the participant will receive technical and practical concepts to enrich their own movement vocabulary in relation to the environment. 


Blending elements coming from conventional methods of training used in dance such as contemporary and ballet, with non conventional ways of perceiving the body and its movement such as studying patterns from nature, Mexican contemporary ceremonial dances and outdoor practices of dance. Se rapprocher du sol c'est se rapprocher de la Terre, ORIGEN est une expérience d'entraînement/recherche physique, dynamique et mentale dirigée par Paco Ziel, où le danseur acquiert des concepts techniques et pratiques pour enrichir son propre vocabulaire de mouvement en relation avec l'environnement.
