opens the door to an endless variety of different combinations inside of your movement possibilities.
And so by playing, organising and reorganising your body simple and complex in many different ways it allows you to keep playfull all the time while dancing. (HOW COLOURFULL YOUR DANCING CAN BE?) Body functions the way we wish or rather allow it to function.
This game of Puzzle Work is a never ending process, never ending game, if we wish or allow it to be. Each body has its BALANCE, LOGIC and its LIMITATIONS.
I feel lucky today to be discovering where my balance is and where my limitations are and how I can transform that and integrate it in my dancing.
Anton Lachky-Puzzle Work
If I take 6 different numbers compared to the ones of a bike lock – the combination of these 6 figures are endless in different orders and that’s how we keep our bike safe.
DANCING IS NOT THE NUMBER and WE ARE NOT THE BIKE LOCK.
Meaning with 6 different movements, the body game can be endless depending on which movement comes in which order.
How large is the scale of our movement? Thats where ENDLESSNESS steps in. How many possibilities of combination do we have?
As i mentiond before we are not a bike lock and movements are not the numbers so…
in which size
with what inension
In which context
and most importantly with what FEELING do i move
DO WE ALL HAVE ACESS TO THE SPEED?
Yes we do.
Who is Puzzle Work for? Any dancer and mover of any category who loves to move wants to discover his physical possibilities, discover his abilities and his own coordination skills.
Dancers who likes to be challenged and are willing to learn more.
Is it only for contemporary dancers?
Absolutly not, its for any dancer who loves a high level of physicallity and challenge (urban dance, ballet, circus,acrobats, gymnasts and any other movement lovers).
