Tina Afiyan Breiova’s personal practice started as she was trying to expand her possibilities as a performer. What was initially a performance practice became a wide movement research. Learning from dance techniques, somatic education, martial arts, yoga, physical theatre, she now propagates an inclusive way of looking at movement. Encouraging nerdy specificity in discovering what the body is capable off, finding one’s habits, expanding range of motion and allowing the joy of failing to be a motor towards reaching aims. “We evaluate where are, plan where we go and than we play and improvise.”
Tina‘s teaching is highly influenced by David Zambrano, Tomislav English, Mabel Eslworth Todd, Fighting Monkey/Rootlessroot, Salva Sanchis, Hannes Langolf, Julyen Hamilton, Yoko Ando and professors from P.A.R.T.S. university. As performer Tina is a member of Roberto Olivan Company, and has previously performed for and collaborated with directors Milan Tomášik, Thomas Ryckewaert, Juliane Von Crailsheim, Lenka Flory and many others. Tina is also a maker, her solo Shalakho and duet Blue Gloom with Maya Oliva won the first prize of Jarmila Jeřábková Award 2017. During the summer 2018 she directed a full-length circus performance “KolaboRace”, featuring Feel The Universe Circus Company.
The workshop will be in English. Suitable for dancers of all levels.
