You will be given the opportunity to make your own decisions in the moment, and will be encouraged to follow your own interests within given parameters. The aim of the class is to develop a sense of authorship and to enable a greater understanding of one’s own practice. More about the artist.
JUNE 12 + 13 Ihsaan De Banya // Cunningham Inspired Class will start with standing exercises that focus on the articulation and mobility of the back. It will then travel through centre material with a focus of efficiency and alignment, ending with a guided improvisation to connect the dancer to sensation, imagination, and the joy of movement.

“As [openclass] isn’t attached to a larger organisation or institution, there is a great freedom for teachers and dancers a-like to be in a place of experimentation with their practices, without a pressure of what these classes have to be like and how the body has to move within these classes – which is very unique. “ – Leah Marojević
