ION TRIBE INTENSIVE
Come and join Luke Jessop for the Ion Tribe Intensive. In light of the difficult times, Ion Tribe is offering a two-part intensive, consisting of a week long in-person workshop held at Ultima Vez Studios, Brussels. Then in the afternoons, there is a partnering workshop available through Zoom, for those who cannot travel.
The mornings will consist of a Riding The Curve workshop, led by Luke Jessop. Bringing together various influences such as; Acro-dance, B-boying, contemporary dance, and circus. Specifically, we'll look at how we can create curves and structures with the body to flow in and out of the floor, utilising the arms, shoulders and full-back in various ways to both receive the floor and create air-time. Seeking to minimise the restrictions of working with the floor, we will take advantage of gravity and 'ride the curve' into the floor. This workshop focuses on finding fluidity and comfort, building on new patterns as we get increasingly more complex/advanced.
The afternoons will comprise of partnering work, each day building up trust, and sensitivity. As of course we are working with the same partner throughout the week we can grow with them. We will look at various tools, games, exercises to assist in acrobatic movements, as well as choreo sequences to learn and principles to understand how to be an effective partner. The movement material will be heavily influenced by what Luke has trained in over the years, including contemporary dance, Ultima Vez repetoire, Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling and Forro.
To be clear, the morning workshop is in studio and the afternoon workshop is online. You can participate in either one. For the afternoon Zoom workshop, it's one ticket per couple (max. 2 people.)
** COVID CONDITIONS - Due to the current restrictions, the morning workshop is limited to 10 people max. In case of restrictions becoming tighter or the lockdown situation not improving here in Belgium, we will shift the morning workshop online, so that the whole event is available through Zoom. This will of course allow for more people to attend, as well as a reduction of the price down to €80 for the morning workshop also. We will keep you updated as the situation progresses.
