What the workshop is
In this two part workshop we will teach you a hand to hand sequence that is based on one of our acts, which you can see here: https://youtu.be/xhKbA-fvH2w.
What people can expect
You can expect floaty, dynamic and a little unusual tricks and transitions that combine elements of partnering with hand to hand.
In the first part we will focus on the individual tricks, breaking them down and providing different levels of difficulty based on your experience. We will focus less on foundational techniques, but rather on finding ways for you to approach interesting tricks and adapting them to your level, or learning them safely.
In the second part you will put together a sequence combining the moves we taught the previous day and adding some more transitions and variations along the way.
What experience people need
Ideally you feel comfortable with standing F2H and H2H but it's not a requirement. More importantly you should be comfortable working with limited spotting
What they need to bring with them
Comfortable training clothes, a variation of long and short pants could be useful for some of the tricks.
If they can book as a solo person or must book with a partner
Best bring a partner that you are comfortable playing with, trios are also fine, but we'll be working with the same partners throughout.
A bit of background information about Sophie Zoletnik & Lennart Paar and their teaching practise.
Sophie Zoletnik and Lennart Paar, both acclaimed artists with unconventional paths into the performing arts, initiated their collaborative journey in 2016 by co-creating a captivating street theatre performance. With backgrounds not rooted in circus education—Sophie holds a Master of Science degree in Architecture, and Lennart in Computer Science—they have carved a unique niche for themselves within the performing arts. Their primary discipline, hand to hand acrobatics, was honed under the guidance of sports acrobat coach Yves van der Donkt, laying a solid foundation for their distinctive movement style. This style seamlessly blends dynamic partner acrobatics with fluid partnering moves, enriched by unexpected falls and rolls.
Their teaching style is based on what they love, playfulness and exploration. While they are based in Budapest, they have taught workshops across europe at acro and flowarts conventions to a diverse set of participants.
