MOVING THROUGH ACROBATICS
Acrobatics, Improvisation and Floor work
Moving Through Acrobatics is one-day workshop taught by Gabbie Cook and Nat Whittingham. It’s a partnership that delivers the necessary tools to combine and improvise acrobatics and contemporary dance in a fun, accessible, no-nonsense workshop series. Each section will draw from their individual and combined styles.
Gabbie’s style is mix of soft acrobatics and dynamic tricks which she combines with floor work and improvisation; searching for a large movement vocabulary that can translate to characters and theatrical scenarios. She’ll warm-up the rhythms, levels and qualities of movement and train set-pathways within floorwork. The class will build up to longer improvised tasks, working with balance, maintaining momentum and re-directing energy. She will share the principles of acrobatics which can then be applied within choreography or improvisation. Most importantly, it is time to develop your own style and discover what interests you.
Nat’s style focusses on inverted positions and dynamism – encompassing spiralling, moving on hands, and counterbalance. He will lead an exploration into an eclectic vocabulary of acrobatic movements, handstand and headstand variations, falling, and twisting drills, as well as touching on his own ways of creating and maintaining momentum, improvising and finding performance states.
