** UNE PERFORMANCE/DISCUSSION OUVERTE À TOUS AURA LIEU LE 20 OCTOBRE, de 17H à 19H À LA MAISON POUR LA DANSE DE QUÉBEC **
Ady Elzam is a dancer, teacher and choreographer, with a deep technical background in contempo-rary dance, improvisation and performance. He believes art should challenge and inspire, both the artist as well as the spectator. As a preforming artist he’s motivated to cross borders and question the norm in relation to the audience, and its roll in art.
For many years Ady has been exploring movement dynamics in partner work, his main interest is in the communication that creates clear understanding between partners, as if no words are needed. This applies also to the relationship of the observer and the observed. As a performer he’s interested in the artist’s ability to expose oneself, evoke emotion in the audience, and the connection between the two.
Ady started dancing and preforming at age 10 in the Israeli folklore dance school « The Iris of Naza-reth » .
He met modern dance in 1997, and embarked on a journey to explore the dance world until 2005 when he dedicated himself to the art of contemporary dance, improvisation and movement explora-tion.
He trained at the modern dance academy in Haifa and continued to dance in Vertigo Dance Com-pany and DeDe Dance. Over the years he worked with many different choreographers such as; Ofra Idel, Elad Shecter, Matan Levkowich, Yuval Goldshtain, Sharona Floreshaim, Dafi Altabeb, to name a few.
Now days Ady is living in Brussels in a community project that is dedicated to change the face of tomorrow. He is creating a solo, teaching improvisation and movement technique, and facilitating urban spaces for the exploration of performance.
DESCRIPTION DE LA CLASSE
Go for it!
Dance Improvisation workshop
The idea of ‘Go for it!’ refers to the basic concept of letting go. Applying the ‘Go for it!’ principle within a performative and improvisational context, involves embracing imperfectness, trusting one’s intuition without holding on preconceived plans, and working with an uninhibited totality. Taking the impulses we have, the reactions to situations in improvisation, and concentrating on the instrument we use (in this case Body).
There is great potential in stepping out of our borders and becoming a vessel for the situation to play itself out through us. We won’t apologise for ‘mistakes’, we will look for them and use them.
‘Go for it!’ is about having courage, being honest and exposed, listening to yourself and trusting your self, being present and total.
We’ll be working with the idea of Failure, setting a goal to be unsuccessful, to miss the point, miss the mark, go belly up, break down, be ruined, make a mess, go wrong, lose control, drop, crash, fluff, fail. Having this starting point will allow us to say “Fuck’it” and be free to go further then we would consider, be lost, and deal with ‘the shit’ that comes up during a improvised session.
– We will have time to practice our instrument – work with our bodies.
(physical improvisation exercises for)
– We will take time to explore what brings us to move – why do you dance?
– And we’ll work on improvisation scores – practicing the state of performance.
Stage possible grâce à la collaboration du Conseil de la culture des régions de Québec et de Chaudière-Appalache.
