The human animal evolved through a rich variety of movements in ever changing scenarios. The mix of Contact Improvisation, tango, Taichi and movement principles can provide a variety of non-repetitive movements vital for our wellbeing. The type of movement input we nourish our bodies with will transform us biochemically, remodelling us emotionally and creatively, generating new synapsis and movement patterns, besides invigorating our minds. On the other hand, this open combination allows us to get in touch with oneself and others in a grounded, creative and consensual way.
This open combination, boundless of a given style, developed in a playful environment, results in a freedom of movement that expands our possibilities of expression and creative complicity. It provides the possibility to deepen the understanding of our bodies and our physical relation with society and Nature. The Ecological Body is a fluid crossover between the disciplines of Biomechanics, Ecology and Somatics.
-nourish a variety of movements that can be easily integrated in our every day life.
-develop movements that have to do with our evolutionary history (pushing, pulling, walking, squatting, lifting, spirals, etc,) establishing a flow between them, and applying them to Contact Impro, tango or any physical expression.
– enhance our instinctual animal reflexes reconciling them with the limits of our structural anatomical design,
-broaden the subtleness of our sensory motor system through touch, breath, relaxation and grounding
-develop different body organisations by expanding our physical imagination,
-reclaim our bodies enhancing our sensoriality and our empathic connection with others, in duos, trios and groups.
