Lucas Condró is coming back to London with his Contemporary Dance/ Asymmetrical-Motion workshop on Sat 20 & Sun 21 April 2024.
This method inquires through different perspectives into the agility of the body for its movement and displacement in space. Agility is understood here as the most effective way of using body mechanics in relation to energy, musculature and gravity.
The classes are organized in three different modes of relation with movement: observation of the encounter between body and task, deduction of the observed on one’s own and the other’s, and incorporation from deduction and experience.
About Lucas Condró:
Lucas is a dancer, choreographer and teacher. In 1999 he was invited by the master and choreographer David Zambrano to participate in a seminar at the SNDO (School For New Dance Development) where he would then perform his studies for 3 years and receive the title of Dance Maker. He would then perfect his education at the Choreographic Centre of Montpellier, with masters like Mark Tompkins, Lisa Nelson and Mathilde Monnier.
Back in Argentina, he started working alongside the choreographers Diana Szeinblum, Lucia Russo y Natalia Tencer.
From 2012 to the present day he has been carrying out his project, ASYMMETRICAL-MOTION: a research work for the purpose of developing and systematizing his experience regarding the pedagogical practice in contemporary dance.
In 2015, alongside Pablo Messiez, he published the book Asymmetrical-Motion/Notas, on pedagogy and movement (edited by Continta Me Tienes). In 2016 he published Lo Singular (edited by Continta Me Tienes).
He has resided in Madrid since 2018, where he develops different artistic and pedagogical research projects. In 2019 he co-founded MoverMadridalongside Poliana Lima, a contemporary dance festival performed at Cuarta Pared theatre. He has also collaborated in the choreographer’s pieces: Hueco; Las cosas de mueven pero no dicen nada y Oro Negro. This very year he assembled the choreography for the staging of the work Las Canciones by Pablo Messiez (Pavón Kamikaze theatre). In 2021 he participated as an interpreter in Cuerpo de Baile, a work directed by Pablo Messiez and performed at the Autumn Theater Festival in Madrid and the Metropolitan Dance Festival in Barcelona.
