Teacher: Eddie Oroyan
Assisted with: Jessica Eirado Enes
An open level movement exploration and contemporary dance class to mindfully train the brain alongside the body, to develop awareness and choice. The two-part class will range from meditative to impulsive, but with an ‘as we are, not as we want to be’ approach. Tools and guiding are offered throughout the class to enable subtle and gross awareness and develop presence. The goal is to observe and understand the animal inside, to recognize the direct weave of the mind and body, and to learn how mindful decision and wildness can coexist. The class is inspired from working with companies Ultima Vez and Emanuel Gat Dance and through years of daily meditation.
In the first part, we will dance and move around the space together using tools to expand awareness to the subtle and gross sensations in our bodies while at the same time accepting what we find without attachment or avulsion. We will awaken our other senses and play with how they can affect our movement experience. We will work in a way that encourages new pathways in the brain that lead to a more present state of being rather than a destination focus.
The second part will attend to empathic moving and to that wildness inside, that animal that we all are. We will try to wake up in the body what it seems to not remember. There will be games and structured play to benefit reflex and proper response training built around the concepts of equanimity that we will explore in the first day. We can tap into a hyper-intelligence when we can move from this animal, without fear or self-judging.
EDDIE BRUNO OROYAN
Animal mindfulness. It is search for balance. After an injury in late 2014, Oroyan began a practice of meditation and observation. His performing and studies have long included animal reflex training and proper response, but his new practice has and continues to teach him curiosity and awareness of the more subtle and delicate, the empathetic. After returning to performing and teaching, Oroyan is moved to explore and share these discoveries through the stage and classroom.
Oroyan performed with Ultima Vez for nearly six years, having toured and performed primarily with What the Body Does not Remember and In Spite of Wishing and Wanting. He is currently working with Emmanuel Gat (since 2017) and is in creation/premiere/touring of the new project STORY WATER. His experience also spans Creach/Company, Shapiro & Smith, ARENA Dances, Zenon, Andrea Miller, and Roberto Olivan. He was a founding mover and continues as an Artistic Associate for company Black Label Movement. As an active choreographer, some of his recent collaborations were presented at American Dance Festival 2014 (w/ Carl Flink) and Zürich Tanzt 2015(w/ Rakesh Sukesh). Eddie presented a solo in 2016 at P12 Space in Brussels and premiered a duet with Natalia Pieczuro at Dag van de Dans 2017. Most recently Eddie was part of The Guest Project in Thessaloniki in creation of a new trio and is currently in creation Jessica Eirado Enes for a new duet.
