A Bastardised Technique: Research and Performative Training

To bastardise: to change something in a way that .makes it fail to represent the values and qualities that it is intended to represent.

Bastardised Techniques are the result of an interdisciplinary research and practical experience gathered over the last 22 years. From the auto-didactical, circular and energetic nature of break dance & acrobatics into contemporary dance through composition and improvisation, with nuggets of martial arts. The physical aspect of this work is Playful, sweat-inclusive, unpredictable, and deprogramming.

While the mental activity works on structuring, intuition needs to guide and the heart needs to feel. We (also dancers) are strongly conditioned to compartmentalise these aspects: When I talk I don’t listen, when I think I don’t move, when I feel I don’t think, when I sense myself I don’t connect to the surrounding environment.

A Bastardised Technique stimulates the capacity for simultaneous thinking, sensing and feeling within the movement. Composition is part of improvisation, the individual part of the group and the collective does not standard-ise the individual, but gives it a safe context to explore him/herself instead. For this, both action (proposition) and receptivity (active observation) need to be practised. Sensory perception is questioned physically, rhythms and patterns are liste-ned to in motion. We will dive into spiral motions, square isotopes, forces in opposition, partnering and work hand in hand with our creative and imagina-tive skills to fertilise our foundations.
