May: Sahirine Martínez
Born under the Caribbean sun of Venezuela, I embraced movement as my primary language of life. With a background in Cunningham technique, Limon, and Release I open myself to breathe movement in all its sizes, shapes, and colors.
Over the years, teaching and performing gave me the opportunity to fusion and mix different styles and techniques, allowing me to find a unique voice to express myself and share it with others. Currently, I am finishing an MA in Dance/Movement Psychotherapy at Codarts-Rotterdam, where I am deepening in the potential that could be awakened in every unique individual through movement.
Modern Dance- Limon Inspired-
Through a dynamic and rhythmic class, we will explore the unique relationship that a dancer has with the space, the organicity behind the movement through Limon and release principles such as breathing, fall and recovery, suspension, retreat, and weight. This class will transport you to a creative space where body tensions will be left behind to allow your body to express its original intentions through your own inspiration.
Core Elements in Limon Technique
Core elements in Limon’s technique come from human movement and the sensations the body experiences in motion.
-Use of breath and its influence on movement; the impact of weight on individual body parts and how that creates expression; flexibility of the spine; body-part isolations; and the dynamism between fall and recovery.
-Focus on the feeling and quality of the movement instead of getting stuck in the steps and exact forms. “The point is to experiment and find the movement from the inside out, rather than trying to recreate someone else’s shapes,”
-A creative process that expresses a sensible reflection and respect for human happiness and pain.
The Limón technique is divided among various physical extremes: fall and recovery, rebound, weight, suspension, succession, and isolation. These ideas can be illustrated in the way a dancer uses the floor as a place from which to rise, return to and then rise from again. The way a dancer explores the range of movement between the one extreme of freedom from gravity and the other of falling into it.
“We are never more truly and profoundly human than when we dance” (J. Limón)
