GYROKINESIS ® - OPENING AND CLOSING WITHIN THE BREATHING CYCLES
Due to the lockdown we are not able to offer in person classes for professional dancers. In order to support dancers we offer our professional training via Zoom and free of charge during this period!
To Participate registration with your CV at email@example.com is required. Via this address you will receive confirmation and access to the Zoom approximately 15 minutes before the start of the training.
Registration is possible until 10 am on the respective training day, if spots are still available.
GYROKINESIS® is a practice based on circular movements connected with the rhythm of breath and balancing the symmetry in the body. It is a practice created by former ballet dancer Juliu Horvath, developed and cherished by his students. During the four days of training via Zoom the focus will be on strengthening the core in order to bring freedom into the movement.
For Maria Zimpel Gyrokinesis is a way to warm up and a way to keep renewing balance in the body. As a dancer and choreographer it suits her perfectly as a base for the body training. As a GYROKINESIS ® teacher she wants to share with others a practice that helps to enjoy an elegant, strong and graceful movement full of breath.
For the class a chair (stool), a mat (yoga mat is fine) and water is needed.
Information about the event
|Price||participation free of charge|
studied dance and choreography at HZT at University of Arts in Berlin. In her works she explores limits of physicality and focuses on creating her own dance language.
She was introduced to GYROTONIC® and elements of Gyrokinesis by Harumi Terayama in Berlin in 2018, during a dance production. All of her teachers are dancers connected to ballet and/or contemporary dance.
Her choreography Noish~ has been awarded Aerowaves20 in 2016. She is an author of many solo and collaborative projects. Her works were shown in Austria, Poland, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Russia and other places.
During the K3 residency Maria continued to follow her interest regarding the relations between sensing, inteligent body, Spacetime and movement. In her choreographic research she draws on quantum physics and broadly understood perception in movement. It explores the idea of dance as an elementary force creating and transforming places. Places are not static. They appear and disappear, open and close in accordance to the quality of actions they welcome. The notion of place as dance-based event is explored via movement research and a dialogue between music, light, space design and dance.
