Axis Syllabus Intensive Week

TREenit! Ry: Axis Syllabus Intensive Week led by international teacher Ayelet Yekutiel. The course focuses on Axis Syllabus practice and the space of dance. The course is held in English.

Morning training Mon–Fri at 10.00–11.30:
Axis Syllabus class, Ayelet Yekutiel
Workshop Mon–Fri at 12.30–15.00:
Space symphony, Ayelet Yekutiel 
We will deepen our inquiry and experimentation with the tools proposed in the morning class and apply them to dance improvisation (alone, in a group and with partners) and somatic work.

Axis Syllabus is a collection of information, a toolbox of principles regarding the human body in motion, assembled from various approaches and fields which complement each other. Workshop would like to offer lenses, maps and games through which we could look at and tangibly explorer how we perceive, conceptualise, experience, design and inhabit - space. Utilising tools from the Axis, we will play with movement as it manifests in the 3D-cartesian grid, and the 4D-space&time continuum, descriptions of space.
