Over five days, dancers will be offered a comprehensive introduction to Countertechnique. Developed by Anouk van Dijk, Countertechnique is a contemporary dance technique that integrates intellectual intention with physical activity, strengthens and stretches the body, and enables dancers to move bigger, more fluidly, and more spatially.
Daily Countertechnique classes will be followed by discussions about and physical investigations of the Countertechnique Toolbox, Horizontal Falling, Basic Anatomy, Countertechnique in Choreography, Countertechnique in Improvisation, and The Cube (derived from the 9-point technique as developed by Slender-White, Anouk van Dijk, Amanda Miller, and William Forsythe). Each of these sessions will help dancers deepen their Countertechnique practice while facilitating the use of Countertechnique in other dance forms and modalities.
