Workshop: Dance meets parkour

In this workshop, Antero Hein and Severin Romer Iversen presents basic parkour skills for dancers, as well as floor work and repertoire from the performance Uventa.

About parkour
Parkour is a form of movement where the athlete (called a traceur) aims to move in a complex urban environment in the most energy-efficient way possible. It is a minimalist approach to the extreme environments and movements. With roots in military obstacle course training and martial arts, parkour includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, plyometrics, rolling and quadrupedal (four-legged movement). Parkour listens to its surroundings and analyzes the circumstances, then, in unexpected ways, overcomes obstacles in an extreme way with minimalist energy. Academic research on parkour describes how it provides a new way of interacting with environments that challenge the use and meaning of space, life and embodiment.
