Workshop „Soft Acrobatics“ mit Itamar Glucksmann
Workshop Soft Acrobatics with Itamar Glucksmann
„I don’t pretend to be a dancer, but rather an acrobat who dances. I like to play, to explore the movement and sensation that comes from it. I seek the proximity with the ground, the fluidity of sequences, through articulated movement. Without mattresses, I approach acrobatics with tenderness, avoiding impacts and percussion, but at the same time remain physical and committed. I want to explore this point where acrobatics and dance meet – a meeting that seems increasingly obvious to me.“
