Profitraining Jorge Bascuñan

About the class

This practice offers tools to explore our bodies' physical and sensory aspects. The structure is shaped from a warm-up inspired by somatic practices, anatomy, and martial arts, followed by elements of floor work, partnering, and group dynamics that seek moments of (contact) improvisation. With a lens focused on the physical forces observed in weight transfer, balance, flow, and rhythmic dynamics, the goal is to find an autonomy of creation and identity in the relationship and boundaries between bodies. I seek playful moments to step out of our comfort zones and activate our presence to generate an available body
