Flowing Identity Workshop 

"I have been developing my contemporary work focused on continuity and fluidity of movement in favor of greater availability of the body. The concept of a meaningful movement led me to create Flowing Identity, a workshop where dancers will be directed and encouraged to build their own movement identity. They will discover their bodies as a driving and creative force, connecting with freedom of exploration by using space, rhythm, and creativity as an initiative for locomotion. The workshop aims to provide tools that enable the participants to become better physical communicators. How and why do we move in a determined way? Find that movement changes from body to body and discover that it can recognize hardships and readapt to increase efficiency."
