Movement and Facial Expression
Workshop with Lucille Aires / Sun 2.7.2023, 2-5 pm
In this workshop Lucille centers the connection between movement and facial expression, exploring facets of dance that go beyond movement itself like ancestry, culture, freedom of expression, emotions, feelings and attitude. Dancing involves a lot of acting, it can go from expressing feelings in and through music to storytelling in choreography. The workshop offers a space to explore different music styles and their effect on our emotions, as well as how to express them in movement. The dance styles Amapiano and Female Dancehall will lead into a research of facial and physical expression, while reflecting on how these approaches can improve one’s artistic performance.
