company Idem is organizing open workshops for dancers.

The workshops are intended for professionals and amateurs, but also for “movers” from other fields, for example martial arts, hip-hop, ballet, circus as well as creative people looking for a new experience. For this reason the workshops will include: training with different moving techniques, which the company also use to create its choreographies. Through this you will gain an inside into the way a professional dance company works. You may also discover various ways to approach movement in all its facets. As a result, you will understand body mechanisms better and this will help to move more freely. By learning some of the movements from company Idem’s productions, your ability to move more expressively will improve. In addition, this will help you to understand how a scene is created or a theme illustrated.
