Horácio 2

The structure and the goal of the workshop is creation and composition of movement, Horacio proposes a highly physical work that demands attention, interest and alertness rather than a certain level of technique. The participants learn how to instantly relate and connect themselves to the environment and to develop playfulness and spontaneity in taking decisions, for immediate composition full of meaning.


His approach is based on his own intuition and varies and evolves with what the group offers. Basis of this workshop is the diversity of the personal movement and world of each participant, who will be working from the body, with images and emotions to discover new and surprising possibilities. The intention always lies in accessing the full expression and communication of the personal dance, not in terms of virtuosity but from the uniqueness as a being.

Everybody learns from everybody, to risk more and to delve deeper into the potential of their own creativity  by sharing, observing, attending, seeing other bodies and appreciating what is offered. The more present, more complete the dance happens, the deeper and richer it gets.

Let's dance!
