Workshop based on Kidd Pivot tools and methodology
Kidd Pivot’s improvisation workshop focuses on discovering and revealing articulations and timings in the body. It begins with a warm-up as participants articulate deeply through the body in stages, starting from the spine and working towards the extremities. Participants work at their own pace, exploring kinetic relationships both within their own bodies and to the space around them. The workshop is explorative and non-performative: its focus is on the play between analysis and instinct, and the use of improvisation both as a tool and an experience.


A graduate from École supérieure de ballet du Québec, Eric Beauchesne has been on stage with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe and Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, as well as with Canadian contemporary dance icons such as la Fondation Jean-Pierre Perrault, Paul-André Fortier, Louise Lecavalier and Crystal Pite. Company member since 2004, he currently collaborates with Kidd Pivot as rehearsal director, and stages Crystal Pite’s work on companies including Cullberg Ballet, Ballet British Columbia, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and, most recently, Ballet Zürich. He has served as a guest teacher for several organizations such as the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, Arts Umbrella Vancouver, and the Dutch National Ballet Academy, and was a rehearsal director for Nederlands Dans Theater.
