Contemporary Technique by Helder Seabra (former dancer with Wim Vandekeybus and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui)
We’ll start with a class focusing on the organic way of moving, using and recycling energy with continuous flow, growing progressively from the floor and approach concepts like risk, trust, instinct, speed. We’ll focus amongst others on kinetic force and anatomy, departing from and back to our own center, with an openness towards the inside (physical consciousness) and outside (all around us), merging what we control and what we let happen/observe.
Then we’ll explore a set of physical, theatrical and imagery propositions. We’ll delve into different qualities, develop and transform taught repertory material and original ideas. But also explore own personal movement language, using intuition and personal background, pushing boundaries.
I’m interested in exploring, in a playful environment, physical and mental limits, what we experience and how we can push further…
Originally from Portugal, Helder Seabra, received his training in Ginasiano/Portugal and P.A.R.T.S./Belgium. For the past 14 years he has been a long-term member of the renowned companies Ultima Vez/Wim Vandekeybus and Eastman/Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, as a performer, assistant choreographer and teacher for local and international assignments. At the same time he has been progressively developing his own artistic practices and in 2013 he founded HelKa Vzw, to channel all his previous experiences and explore the full potential of the body & mind, and different forms of dialogue, through collaborations with other artists. Through the platform he has been creating, performing, and teaching on an intensive basis (inter)nationally.
