the fluid crystal

Undulating patterns of movement express the architectural character of all energy and form in this universe, the spiral. The practice of wave-form motion is healing and profoundly instructive, and represents the fine-grade understanding and conscious use of the body's resources. The Axis Syllabus designates the masses of the body as "motoric", i.e. possessing the potential for energy creation and propulsion, and the articulation or joints as administrative "motion centers", which provide moment arms, pendulum tie-offs and levers for the motoric masses. In this class we will practice limpid kinetic energy transfer from one motor to the other and discuss specific vector choices while we observe healthy limits for alignment.

Eszter Gál (Hungary)

dance is everywhere

A movement technique class that builds on releasing principals, begins with fine tuning to the whole self /practicing letting go, economy, opening to all directions, exploring dynamic alignment/, followed by partner movement studies, guided dancing and sequences that are based on flow, momentum and wide range of dynamics. Being playful and falling into forms will offer the possibility to enter the dance from many directions. Being on the floor or in the air can become one.


Eszter Gál is a dancer, teacher, working at the Universityof Theater and Film Arts in Budapest, co-founder of IDOCDE and the project coordinator as well as one of the researchers of the EU funded International project on documentation of Contemporary Dance Education REFLEX EUROPE (2015 – 2018). Her core interest is somatic-based movement research, improvisation performance and community work for dance education.

Deep and Chaotic

The Deep And Chaotic classes deal with transformation of movement and the building of deep dance vocabularies that derive from a conscious stepping out of comfort zones. Blenard Azizaj addresses the "animal" instinct within us, employing dynamic movements, roughness, sharpness and speed. Using the body's sensibility as a brush, we will paint an imaginary landscape through dancing. The state of mind becomes a state of body. We constantly construct and de-construct movement, roughing it up in order to refine it and making it real.


Blenard Azizaj was born in Albania. He graduated at the National State School of Greece, as a dancer, dance teacher and choreographer. He has worked and collaborated with Sasha Waltz & Guests, Akram Khan Company, Linga dance Company and Hellenic dance Company. He is creating his own choreographic works  and  also teaching his dance vocabulary in big dance companies in dance and theatre academies, and in several dance studios around the world.
