Practice is the method Yuval Pick has been developing for several years.
It nourishes his dance and is the daily training method of his company’s dancers. Practice offers professional and non-professional dancers tools to connect with their bodies and to encounter those of others in a different way, through our creativity and imagination.
With Practice, every movement is considered as an action, materialized by a precise intention. Each intentioned action is a manifestation of the self. This fundamental principle opposes the idea that movement must produce an aesthetic form.
To enable dancers to discover actions, Yuval Pick developed a work on the “imaginary body”. Through playful and organic images, the “imaginary body” is awakened and transforms one’s perception of the body. These different images, often drawn from the mineral, animal or plant world, allow the participant to make actions and to find their intentions.

“Practice enables people to realize that the space between us can be modified and adjusted. It can be invented, reinvented, worked on.”
