The Playground NYC allows dancers to experience various choreographic styles and ideas, engage with a new community of dancers, and gather resourceful information and inspiration from the array of choreographers involved. In turn, established choreographers are paid for their creative investigations, are given free space to explore new movements with professional dancers, and are provided with the opportunity to establish relationships with new dancers and fellow choreographers.
César Brodermann's class proposes a discovery of guided movement to investigate the infinite possibilities of the body and mind.
The goal of the class is to break familiar habits, break boundaries. Borders that have been created in our bodies. Find our connection with our body and the present moment. An opportunity to feel free, develop one's own expressive movement and heal through movement. In the class we will investigate the latest choreographic and research works that César has been developing.
