An open workshop serves as a basic platform for the Fighting Monkey Practice: it’s an overall introduction to the qualities and ideas that have been developed over the last 15 years of Fighting Monkey research. This workshop is open for dancers, circus people, actors and all movers: there are no restrictions or prerequisites, in terms of former experience and background, for anyone who wants to join an Open Workshop.
The work is totally based on Fighting Monkey practice and dedicated to strenghtening and elaborating your partnering skills - in other words speaking: your « comunication skills ». Working with the partner will bring us the alive and so precious irregularity in the training; will influence our behavior, the diversity of qualities, tempo and rhythm of our movement.
Through partnering work - “movement situations”, coordinations, work with tools, injury prevention and body conditioning and « being », we will work on strengthening the focus, the awareness and the whole system.
We will brake the patterns, learn new patterns and try to find our wings.
We will question how can one learn as much as he can and want?
How can one be open to the "new" and still be well rooted.
