18 jan 2015: Sweet Sunday Contact Jam met Sylvain Meret
Op aanraden van Kristien Sonnevijlle vroegen we Sylvain Meret naar Eindhoven te komen. Ik ben blij dat ik haar advies opvolgde en hij zal vast nog wel eens vaker naar onze Contact Jam's komen. Dankbaar kijken we terug op deze mooie zondag samen.
The training will focus upon the natural undulatory (golvende) range of movements raising from the earth and moving through our bodies. This rhythms express through waves, impulses and spirals. We will work with partners to connect, communicate and play while being aware of riding the same waves. This approach is playful, sensual, respectful, and give lots of opportunities to develop different ways of moving and relating to the others. It also has a cleansing effect on the body and tends to provide a regain of energy.
Born in France, Sylvain began his artistic pursuits in visual arts at Bordeaux's School of Fine-Arts. He turned to the world of contemporary dance studying at P.A.R.T.S (BE). His influences come from Post-Modern aesthetics, somatic arts, neurosciences and shamanism, which led him to graduate with a dance therapy master at CODARTS (NL).
For the past 15 years Sylvain has been active as a performer, choreographer and teacher, working in a range of contemporary and experimental styles, collaborating with many different artists in Europe and Asia. In 2001, he joined the Amsterdam-based Magpie Music Dance Company, directed by Katie Duck. His solo work has been shown in France, The Netherlands, South Korea, Czech republic, Spain, UK, Belgium, and China.
Today he gathered his interest for creative movement expression, awareness, therapy and healing in "Ways of Moving and Being Moved". It includes artistic projects and workshops, private practice in dance therapy, rituals and working with Co-creative awareness.
