Countertechnique is a movement system developed to help the dancer think about the dancing body, focusing on the process of incorporating information into action. Within a clear structure of exercises the Countertechnique class enables dancers to move big and fluidly, while becoming strong and flexible at the same time. Dancers are encouraged to be proactive in discovering connections and solutions, to be less concerned with judging themselves and to work in a healthy and sustainable way.

In this workshop you will be introduced to principles and tools of the Countertechnique through the Countertechnique class. In the second half of the workshop you will get to explore several of the tools more in detail with a different focus each day. We will explore existing repertoire material to find a deeper understanding of the work and find inspiration for own creativity within set boundaries. We will experience the tools through the exchange with a partner opening up to the information that is transferred through different channels when in communication with another person. And we will investigate how our findings can inform and inspire us in performance situations exploring the experience of observing and being observed.
