In the workshop Guy will introduce the theme of infinity as a possible generator for developing choreographic concepts and vocabulary. We shall explore possibilities of building clear individual choreographic approaches by creating compositions, scenes, images, situations and physical tasks. The participants will be involved in each others creations where they will be able to include the other dancers in order to create patterns of different scenes through specific exercises that involve the notion of infinite as a starting point. After developing the individual choreographic ideas we shall incorporate the different scenes into a larger choreographic composition.
