Workshop information

Weekend workshop with LUKE JESSOP



Starting with a focused warm-up class each day, this workshop concentrates on using our body as one in a very physical relationship with the floor. Creating structures and curves with the body to enable creative-acrobatics, flowing in and out of the floor. We will seek to take advantage of gravity to 'ride the curve' down into the floor and use this energy to come back out, using less effort, less muscle, leaving more energy and power.

 Luke joined Ultima Vez in 2012 for the creation of Booty Looting and has since performed in various creations of Wim Vandekeybus. He regularly gives workshops and classes, and is now starting to develop his own work. His class involves highly physical exercises, some of them based on capoeira and breakdance. " Looking at how we can push our understanding of dynamics and working primarily with moving in and out of the floor but also, on leaving the floor in more creative rather than acrobatic ways."
