“Dança Imaginal® espaço de imaginaçao corpórea” is an artistic and choreographic research based in Lisbon. The idea of this project was born from the desire to build a space and time in which people can Imagine. Dance and movement, in this method, ease the imaginative work and the body becomes the place and simultaneously the instrument of access to that Beauty that, as the philosopher Heraclitus said, “loves to hide”.
The lab proposes an original synthesis inspired by different methods: Authentic Movement, Fux creative method and De Vera D’Aragona symbolic method. Each session starts with some warm up exercises, physical preparation and corporal manipulation. Each class is different and mostly dedicated to improvisation following an explorative path of expressive potentialities. Various creative stimuli, objects, paint, images and sensory experiences, open the imagination of the individual and the collective body.
