Teacher : ,, Entropy"classes - contemporary - partnering
Dancer the Nederlands Dans Theater
‘’Entropy is the process of normal decaying into chaos, randomness, and disorder. However, it is also the process of arrangement’'
She danced in four years with the Hamburg Ballet of John Neumeier, her thirst to continue learning guided her to the Nederlands Dans Theater, where her career as a contemporary dancer would have a big twist. In the Nederlands Dans Theater 1 and 2, she danced a vast repertoire and was part of many creations of highly renowned choreographers: Jiri Kylian, Ohad Naharin, Marco Goecke, Stijn Celis, Johan Inger, Alexander Ekman, Crystal Pite, Paul Lightfoot and Sol Leon amongst others.
After graduating and working for four years with the Hamburg Ballet of John Neumeier, her thirst to continue learning guided her to the Nederlands Dans Theater, where her career as a contemporary dancer would have a big twist.
She began as a costume designer with 2011 Marina Mascarell's creation ''Today your Black Shoes are Grey'' premiered in Korzo Theater. From August 2013 she began her career as a freelance dancer and costume designer, working with high rank choreographers and photographers of today’s contemporary scene: Joeri Dubbe, Marina Mascarell, Jiri Pokorny, Jasper van Luijk, Antonin Comestaz, Joris -Jan Bos, among others. At the same time she developed ‘Entropy’ (Contemporary Dance Class). She continues teaching ‘Entropy’, as well as researching on the the body's adaptability.
Movement Class trough games
I like to challenge myself and the participants.With ‘’Entropy’’ I have established a simple yet complex structure of games, rules and limitations where the participants can discover more freedom in understanding their body individually; as well as interacting with others (in the format of contemporary partnering). These games aim to challenge the participants in steps. So the learning process is gradual and follows the natural law of evolving, they become more difficult. In this way the students and I stay awake, have fun and learn.The brain is the heaviest and most ‘loaded’ muscle. By limiting our self to the tasks and rules of each ‘game’ our brain relaxes the ’thought process’. By freeing our mind we unlock new creative space in the body and become elastic and available. We adapt into the conflict and not viceversa.
I will guide you throughout the entire class, coach and physically explore each game with you. I invite you to join me.
Carolina is interested in the constant research of the body's adaptability. Through teaching and personal research her classes are continuously evolving. For ‘’Entropy’’ Movement Class she has established a simple yet complex structure of games, rules and limitations where the participants can discover more freedom in understanding their body: individually as well as interacting / partnering another person. Through her games and 'rules' participants will be able to learn their own borders and, as a result, these new tools can be used to their advantage in creating pivot points while moving on the floor, standing, jumping, manipulating, turning and isolating. The brain is the heaviest and most loaded muscle. By limiting our self to the tasks and rules our brain relaxes the ’thought process’. Our brain starts to be creative and healthy. By freeing our mind we unlock new creative space in the body. Carolina will guide participants throughtout the entire class, coaching as well as physically exploring and showing the exercises.
