Moving Beyond Effort

Moving beyond effort

Beyond effort, beyond body and mind, we find freedom of movement and expression. We go on a journey through movement & physical practice to discover that on the other side there is everything we can imagine.

In this two day workshop we will push our physical and mental borders, in such a way that allows us freedom and creativity. We will go to the limit and cross it just to get a taste of what’s beyond. We’ll practice being out of our comfort zone and learn to enjoy it.

The work is inspired by Somatic & Shamanic practices (such as: ILM method, Feldenkriz & various breathing exercises), that come together to help us have the experience of extreme physical conditions – in a safe and grounded way, allowing us to open up and discover new ground within the body-mind.

Ady Elzam is a dancer, teacher and choreographer, with a deep technical background in contemporary dance, improvisation and performance. He believes art should challenge and inspire, both the artist as well as the spectator. As a performer he’s interested in the artist’s ability to expose oneself, evoke emotion in the audience, and the connection between the two.

Ady started dancing and performing at age 10 in the Israeli folklore dance school “The Iris of Nazareth”. He met contemporary dance in 1997, and dedicated himself to the art, performance, improvisation and movement exploration being his main interests.

Ady trained at the modern dance academy in Haifa and continued to dance in Vertigo Dance Company and DeDe Dance company. Over the years he worked with many different choreographers such as; Ofra Idel, Elad Shecter, Matan Levkowich, Yuval Goldshtain, Sharona Floreshaim, Dafi Altabeb, to name a few..

Now days Ady is living in Brussels, creating work, and teaching movement techniques and improvisation.
