We'll try to improve the fluidity of our actions by 1) establishing a purposeful and clear relation with the floor, and 2) integrating all parts of the body in action. The kind of movement I am interested in is first functional, then expressive as a consequence. In these sessions we will try to understand the link between functionality and expressive power. We will often use improvisation instead of set movements in order to understand and apply technical mechanisms in a conscious way; at the same time, a higher technical awareness will allow us to improvise more fluently and with more tools at our disposal.
Since graduating from P.A.R.T.S. in 1998, Salva Sanchis has produced over 20 choreographic works, including collaborations with Marc Vanrunxt and Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker. From 2002-2007, he worked as a performer for the Rosas company (Bitches Brew) and subsequently as a guest choreographer, signing works in collaboration with de Keersmaeker and producing his own work. After setting up his own organization to produce the pivotal work Objects in mirror are closer than they appear (2008), Salva joined Kunst/Werk in 2010, where he is now the artistic director together with Marc Vanrunxt. During this time, he has often worked with live music by artists such as Bruno Vansina, Peter Lenaerts, Kris Defoort and Bernard Foccroulle. Salva has also developed an extensive pedagogic career teaching workshops internationally, and as a faculty member and program coordinator at P.A.R.T.S.
