 Becoming Animal - Floor Work

(profi-tranining) By authentically reconnecting to our animal evolutionary legacy we move towards heightened levels of sensitivity, perception, awareness and, consequently, an improvement of motor skills and finer expressions. This specific floor-work is grounded on the intimated relationship between movement and breath. We are going to explore the use of human structure at different perspectives in relation to gravity. By crawling across the space we build sequences aligning core-strength in fluid dynamics and explore wave-spiral motions, upside down techniques and headlong practices. The established frameworks become our fertile terrain for the embodiment of a dormant instinctual intelligence capable of operating our bodies effortlessly with ease and grace. Bruno Caverna Born in Rio de Janeiro and based in Europe since 2000, Bruno Caverna has always been strikingly fascinated by human bodies in motion and its latent potential to be explored and extrapolated. At the age of 10 he began practicing Capoeira, which led him to work at a circus as an acrobat in 1993. The year after Bruno "fell into" contemporary dance, a landmark in his professional development for realizing that dancing was the missing link. Over the past 18 years, Bruno has been moving through a thread of uncompromised dedication in the art of integrating his visions and expertise from various dance modalities and distinct disciplines such as Capoeira, Contemporary Dance, Contact-Improvisation, Qi Gong and Russian Systema, into a corporal language of his own. His movement approach has strongly been fostered by the investigation of our primal instinctual spatial perception as well as the science and studies of water flow.
