IN-DEPTH is a 1 month long contemporary dance intensive certification program.
In this course, we will be sharing fundamentals of contemporary dance which we will break down for you to learn and embody, explore various movement possibilities with tools and scores devised by Rahul Goswami.
IN-DEPTH is a contemporary dance intensive certification program spanning over 1 month from Monday to Friday, 11 am to 6pm / 120 hours.
IN-DEPTH Contemporary Dance Intensive Certification Program has 3 layers.
Rahul Goswami will be focusing on his self-invented technique called integrated dance flow.
INTEGRATED DANCE FLOW – where the soul meets the body
Integrated dance flow is a dance practice blending different dance techniques which interconnect our inner energy flow with the space and with other dancers.
The class will guide you through curves and lines in space, smoothly interchanging to flow in space and time. Different methods are being used during the practice, such as Indian Martial Arts (based on MayurBhanj Chhau), Flying Low & Passing Through, Contact Improvisation, Improvisation Composition Tools and Choreography Composition.
You will be presented with a challenge both physically and mentally, to create a unique mind-body interconnection.
You will be learning how to isolate deep movements by using gravity, momentum and quick movements. The focus is to create tranquility by connecting with your soul in your movement.
Where do the soul and the body meet? Soul represents the colors of life, whereas body represents the paint brush. We cannot paint without the brush, but colors are everywhere, filling up the world of the spirits. We will work on breath exercises which interconnect the soul with the body.
During IN-DEPTH Contemporary Dance Intensive Certification Program we will be working on:
We will be investigating composition work through choreography practices. The idea is to blend movement, concepts and spaces to develop the process of performances.
We will be guiding you through different choreography tools which will help you to come up with different performances in the program.
IN-DEPTH has created a small project in the contemporary dance intensive certification program, called RITUAL WEEKEND.
We will be targeting numerous performances in the course which will take place on every Saturday and Sunday. The purpose is to encounter unconventional spaces.
IN-DEPTH is for those people who believe in creation, ideation, research, and movement perception.
You can be from any art field but your mindset needs to come from all these intentions to create an action.
Do you want to learn a dance that gives you a chance to express yourself? Do you want to learn how to move with maximum efficiency? Do you want to get more in tune with your mind and body? This is what we are going to offer through IN-DEPTH course.
Rahul Goswami is an experimental contemporary dancer and choreographer, based in India. He has been juggling between the roles of a performer, choreographer and researcher in a variety of dance forms for the last 11 years. In this short span of time in his career, he had the opportunity to work with some great visionaries in the art industry on several grand-scale projects (David Zambrano/ Flying low & Passing Through; Katie Duck/Magpie Project/Movement Research, composition and improvisation; Vangelis Legakis / Flying Low & Passing Through, Release technique, Experiential anatomy, Choreography, Contact Improvisation; David Liu/ Gaga Movement Expression).
He also studied Indian martial arts and creative movement work at Bhoomika Creative dance center (Bharat Sharma and Tripura Kashyap), Sadhya performing art (Santosh Nair), Choreography and Composition work with Mandeep Raikhy and worked with J.J Sai Babu.
His work has been and is still performed in festivals around India.
In his own words…
“My aim is to work with a variety of movement expressions and explore the possibilities of new ideas through different dance practices. As an artist, I take spontaneous actions that represent different interpretations with indirect meanings through my performances.
I believe that imagination can always manifest into reality, into dance!”
Since we hold a strong intention of building a sustainable community of dance artists, collaboration in various forms is the foundation of our organization. We have a strong base of projects which we intend to run throughout the year including dance education and performances derived from intensive movement research and regular training programs form the purview of Integrated Dance Space. We also believe that targeting different places within the country or outside will help create a wider perspective in terms of learning and practice of the form as we get to connect not only to different people but also to their cultures.
