“what do you have between your hands”
In this class we will use objects, improvisation and body to build and rebuild and rebuild and rebuild and rebuild time and space. We will examine our bodies in movement through improvisation with objects to create an instant dramaturgy. We will develop intuition to make clear and bold choices in improvisation. People interested in taking this class must bring three objects: one from home, one from the street, and one that belongs to someone else. Throughout this class we will also explore how we document and talk about our work processes as artists.
Rebeca Medina is my name. I am a dancer, choreographer and anthropologist, dedicated to the research of the body in movement. I like to work as both a solo performer and ensemble member. I’ve been creating new pieces, based in collective creation, contact improvisation, interdisciplinary collaboration, and informed by my master’s degree in theater and live arts. I’ve studied and worked with masters such as Humberto Canessa (Costa Rica), David Zambrano (Venezuela), Juan Kruz (Spain), Iñaki Azpillaga (Spain), Alexis Eupierre (Spain), Marianela Boan (Cuba), Dominik Borucki (Germany), Ralf Jaroschinski (Germany), Sally Anne Friedlan (Israel), Natalia Orozco (Colombia), among others.
