HAGIT YAKIRA

PROFESSIONAL CLASS

14-15 & 21-22 October 10.30-12.00

ROM FOR DANS / PRODA



Working through long guided processes of improvisation, Contact Improvisation and different physical tasks, you will be guided to touch sensations, emotions, memories, relationships and connectivity. We will work through the notion of repetition and exhaustion, exhausting elements explored through details and energy. In-between moving and reflecting a sense of intimacy and bonding will happen and with it a physical challenge. The class allows insight into the way Hagit works with her Company of dancers in London, with whom she creates choreographic works that perform internationally

ABOUT HAGIT'S TEACHING IN GENERAL - I believe in developing with the students a sense of community, honest communication, thinking bodies, positive (but still demanding) challenges and empathic manners. I encourage a passionate, emotional and experimental approach to dancing, dance technique, improvisation and choreography. I challenge the students to take risks, to work with and against their habits and individual movement choices. I strive to create a safe and encouraging space for the students, as well as to nourish their energy, curiosity, creativity and personal responsibility. I aim to develop dancers’ awareness’ to touch, time, space, the idea of listening (to themselves and to others), and patience. I incorporate the knowledge of the dance world (practitioners, choreographers, pioneers, thinkers, historians etc.), theory, discussions and reflection. In that, the teaching for me is another fundamental source of collaboration.


This class is free for professional dancers.

Hagit shows her work If One Keeps Walking at The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet on October 19th and 20th.
