In his workshop Moritz combines mobility with dynamic sequences on the static trapeze.
After the warm-up, the workshop will focus on particularly dynamic combinations, drops and turns. Awareness of a trapezoid-specific movement language should also be sharpened through small improvisation tasks.

Students are expected to have prior knowledge of trapeze.

straps

teacher - Oscar Mauricio

This workshop is based on the exploration of movement and the awareness of our body in suspension in one or two arms.
We will liberate ourselves from any tension or habits that are preventing us from finding our natural way of moving on the straps.
These ideas will be applied to some basic principles of aerial work, such as suspension, total elevation, extension, inversion, stretching, and rotation. 
We will experiment in various "tempos” and in different directions.
We will take a deep look at the basic positions for work in the straps, arriving at each position in an anatomical and comfortable way for our body.
The aim is to find the most natural way of moving in the air and to inspire aerial artists to integrate this new awareness into their own artistic approach.


***SUITABLE FOR ALL AERIALISTS (Silks, Rope, Trapeze...). YOU SHOULD HAVE A STRONG INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED LEVEL IN YOUR DISCIPLINE.***

Oskar was born in Bogota, Colombia in 1988.

His artistic interest began in 2007, when he was introduced to street art, Contemporary african dance and fire manipulation, and later studied at the National Circus School, Circo Para Todos in Cali Colombia.

Oskar met Soledad Gomez in Argentina, who became his new aerial partner for the Kiebre Duo and the creation of their act SOl_O_S. With this act they won silver at Cirque Du Demain in Paris, and Gold at the Young Stage circus festival in Switzerland.

Rope

Sarah and Liz, Sunday 10 -12

The 6-Pack and other myths: which muscles do the real work and why you should care.

This workshop is a crash-course in functional anatomy in aerial arts.

Though part of the focus during this 2-hour workshop will by on applying functional anatomy concepts specifically to our work on a vertical apparatus (rope and silks) ALL aerialists are welcome to join, as the anatomical knowledge gained can be transferred to all apparatuses.

We will look closely at the hip and shoulder joints – and all the muscles which stabilise and move them – and learn how we can get life-long use (in the air) from these extremely versatile and vulnerable ball-in-socket joints. We will distinguish between our stabiliser and our mover muscles and apply this knowledge directly onto the rope/silks – from the most basic position of hanging in the air from our hands, to oft-repeated movements such as beats, and more advanced tricks such as drops and single-arm moves.

All levels are welcome, but a descent grip on a vertical apparatus is essential as we will be holding positions such as hanging from the hands for extended periods of time in order to assess and integrate physical cues.

Aerial equipment will be provided but please bring a yoga mat for the floor exercises.

hoop

Workshop Friday "learning/improving rolls around the hoop and start of dynamic moves"

In this intermediate workshop we'll work on different rolls around the hoop, like ellbow rolls or lion rolls, focusing on getting them smooth and working towards variations. We'll also start on dynamic moves like hand swings, knee swings or the butterfly drop, focussing on the technique and principles behind it to make you able to work further on your own.

Please bring tight fit clothes as well as protective layers (for example for ellbows, waist, knees,...).

 

Workshop Sunday "advanced dynamic moves"
We look at your swings on hands and knees and improve them looking at biomechanics behind it. Don't worry, it'll be very visual and physical with a background knowledge of why actually an action helps to improve a swing - or why not. From this we'll work further on advanced dynamic tricks like hand swings with twists or salto, knees half turns etc.
Please bring tight fit cloth and if personally needed extra protection.
