Master the aerial hoop and trapeze with Javier Varela | Circus Lab Amsterdam
Sunday 10th of February | 11:00 | Broedplaats Lely
Introduction to dynamic movement and research in aerial hoop and trapeze.
This masterclass will be led by Javier Varela Carrera, dear friend from Chile who is currently living in Italy and working across Europe with a diverse set of circus, dance and other art companies.
The following 3 areas will be explored during the masterclass:
1) Warmup: the body will be prepared for the aerial hoop and trapeze from a physical point of view. We will promote sensitivity and intuition through exercises of dance and floor acrobatics that will allow the body to warm up and discover the different directions in a larger space. The exercises proposed on the ground will be the preparation for the work that we will develop during our research on the apparatus.
2) Introduction to dynamic work on the apparatus: specific exercises will be proposed to approach the dynamic aerial technique, meeting the needs of each individual student and then moving on to a more specific technical work.
3) Research: the search for new movements and figures, through the loss of rationality in space, so that instinct develops naturally.
With a background in martial arts, and later discovery of circus, dance and theater; Javier combines an excellent technical approach with an insatiable appetite for creative expression.
