In this practice guided by Miro Wallner the participants will experience three dimensions of movement:
Exploration: related to the diversity of movement, involving stimulating the body to explore new possibilities that it has not experienced before.
Resolution: a focus on breaking through the emotional barriers to effective movement progression. This will be achieved by identifying personal fears and building appropriate strategies to understand and trust the body.
Transition: “between states” involves the exploration of empty spaces, of the unknown, the “blind” parts of the movement trajectory.
During the workshop, the participants will practice spins and spirals, and will be encouraged to learn tricks from capoeira, contemporary dance and breakdance. There will be a focus on improving upside down control in movement, exercise the spinal arch and learn how to use the chain effect. Finally, emphasis will be placed on eccentric and concentric explosive transitions between movements.

With more than 10 years of movement experience, including 6 years of on stage contemporary dance and years of movement practice with the circus and capoeira, Miro has a huge breadth of knowledge that he is enthusiastic to share with like minded practitioners of movement and dance forms.
Three modules that guide the practice.
Mobility and breaking patterns
Provide practical material and guide exercises to increase the flexibility and expand the possibilities you have to move the body.
How to incite the body to find new ways to move?
The focus of this module is to get mobility and brake movement patterns.
We will focus on movements that curve and twist the spine. Find space between the hip joints and open the shoulders. Make partner dynamics using restriction to teach the body new ways to move.
Module to explore, collect and expand your possibilities of movement.
Explore memories, learn with experiments and build relations
Acrobatics deal a lot with risk and fear. I assume that people practicing this module already had bad and good experiences with the body.
In order to advance with the practice, it is important to build strategies to understand and get the maximum out of each attempt of a trick or new movement.
How to trust yourself or others during the practice?
Tricks and composition
Breaking movement in several parts help to understand and build progressively the conditions to execute it.
There is a point where it is not possible to divide a movement between two states of the body. But there are ways to feel and to compose the transitions.
