Sense it - weekend workshop with Ady Elzam

  • Studio CityGate 1A Klein-Eiland Anderlecht, Brussels Hoofdstedelijk Gewest, 1070 Belgium (map)

In this weekend workshop we will take a close look at the way we move our body and the information we attain from the senses. We will work with framing and limiting the body to discover new movement pathways.

Our senses give us constant feedback about the state of our body, the surroundings we find ourselves in, and the shape of our mind. During this workshop, we will start by expanding our sensorial awareness, which allows us a deep look into our habits. We will then experiment with framing and limiting movements, so that we can create situations in which the body can discover new, un-habitual ways of moving. We allow the body to instantaneously create forms by sensing the movement, rather than the movement coming from a visual perspective. We gain a unique possibility to identify our habitual movement patterns, and start creating new pathways of movement by choosing to take the road less travelled.

Ady Elzam is an Israeli dancer, teacher, and bodywork practitioner. He loves experimenting to find more efficient, more free, more expansive ways of moving, both as a dancer and as a human.
Ady started dancing and performing at age 10 in the Israeli folklore dance school "The Iris of Nazareth". He met modern and contemporary dance in 1997, and later trained at the contemporary dance academy in Haifa and continued to dance in Vertigo Dance Company and DeDe Dance Company. Over the years he worked with many different choreographers such as; Ofra Idel, Elad Shecter, Matan Levkowich, Yuval Goldshtain, Sharona Floreshaim, Dafi Altabeb, to name a few.
