During Closer Music Festival, discover classic and contemporary training styles and techniques, with artists hailing from the historic dance institution currently celebrating its 350 years of existence. Come warm up your body and spirit at the 9 rue du Plâtre!
Warm Up Sessions : a training for the body and mind. From jumpstyle to ballet, from break dance to contemporary, practice then discuss the indispensable movements and gestures that anticipate a performance - the ultimate moment of sharing with an audience. Each Session will begin with a warm up led by the invited dancer or collective, and will be followed by a discussion on themes bridging body movements and social realities : the performativity of the human condition, circulations and physical disruptions in a decorporalized era. With the Warm Up Sessions, we aspire to associate bodily effort with mindful effervescence.
A series curated by Madeleine Planeix-Crocker.
