«The most important thing in dance is to find freedom within the limitation of technique.» - Johan Inger –

The workshop will be daily organized in two different parts. During the first one and a half hour there will be a training in classical ballet. During the second one the participants will be introduced to Johan Inger’s repertoire.

Johan Inger is a prestigious choreographer, based in the Netherlands who creates both modern and classical dance pieces for some of the most famous companies around the World. For him, technique is very important, but communication is vital. You have to learn the rules and then to let them go and to rely purely on dance. Creativity does not concern just the choreographer; even the dancer has to find it inside his or her movement.

In the whorkshop Carolina Armenta will be teaching different excerpts, dance material from Inger’s last work IMPASSE. The piece was made for the dance company Netherlands Dance Theater 2 last February 2020.

IMPASSE  illuminates that the baseline of human behavior is rooted in peer pressure and a loss of self, determined by a seduction of unending streams of “newness". It problematizes the ease with which we seem to fall into what others say or do and how we lose the opportunity for fruitful growth in the process. Can we nurture the ability to seriously interrogate the world together, and find the capacity to reimagine it?

Who does it interest?
Professional dancers and vocational dance students. The workshop will be held in English.
