Physical and Acrobatic Skills Required

DynamO Théâtre’s mission includes the exploration of body movement in space. This workshop revisits a foundational element embedded in DynamO Théâtre’s DNA: the physical work between a base and a flyer, known as “hand-to-hand.”

Key Questions Explored:

– How does even a simple hand-to-hand movement begin?
– How do you initiate and end contact with your partner?
– How to execute, undo, and redo movements? What meaning can these movements or sequences have?
– What do we see, what do we feel?

Participants are invited to a period of exploration, reflection, and analysis of movement. This is an opportunity to collaboratively find answers to these questions under the supervision of NICOLAS GERMAINE, a movement specialist.
