Maya Matilda Carroll | Instrumental Bodies | CPD training for Dance Artists and Teachers
This workshop handles body, movement, time and space as internal and external latitudes though which dancers perceive their work and compose their actions. Integrating skill and fluidity with in /outlook at vision and imagery, we will observe and rediscover our own interaction with physicality, vocabulary, timing and rhythm. These elements will grow from individual tuning to partnering, collaborative listening and group-work constellations. As an improvisation practice, this workshop follows the passions of the present moment, pursuing its many expressions through the scope of performance/ performative states. The workshop is aimed for experienced movers and dancers who wish to research and expand their compositional practice.
Maya is an independent choreographer, dancer and teacher, based in Berlin since 2004. In the past thirteen years Maya has created over 30 works from solo to extended group pieces. She has collaborated with artists and performers from diverse backgrounds; classical / contemporary dancers, visual artists, poets, musicians, actors, opera singers and amateurs, within different continents and diverse cultural impacts. Maya has been making dance independently as well as being commissioned to create pieces for state theaters, independent companies and dance academies. She leads classes and workshops in Europe and abroad, extensively developing her teaching methods alongside her artistic work. In 2011 Maya formed The Instrument with her partner, composer / musician Roy Carroll. Her work is anchored in the meeting point between the palpable and imagined; drawn from and towards the body’s memory, social roots and myth, pluralities and singularities in humans and environment. http://www.theinstrument.org/
