I would like to invite you to a journey into the dance. The dance has its flow on the floor, when your body is light, mobile, and full of water. And it has its flow on higher levels, when your body is full of air and lightness. The dance can take you off-balance and up-side-down. You can experience it in-fall or up-raised, or lost and found in three dimensional space. We will experiment with techniques that make a dance vivid, live, and rewarding. And we will enrich the experience with elements of physical theatre and improvisation, as well as the embodiment of emotions into body structure and movement.
Filip is a contact dancer, improviser, physical actor, director and teacher. He co-founded the Polish physical theatre/dance company The line of Night, and is a member of the international theatre research group The Bridge of Winds, led by Denmark-based troupe Odin Teatret. He is also the co-creator and artistic director of multiple dance film projects.
Filip trained in traditional martial arts (aikido, Wing Tsun) and modern fight systems (Krav Maga, Brazilian jiu-jitsu). These days, he is occupied with contact improvisation and physical movement. Filip performs and teaches internationally both for dance and physical acting (Columbia, Mexico, Thailand, Denmark, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland). After years of training, he is still surprised by the endless possibilities in movement and expression.
