Neus' well tested technique, Delicate Beast feeds of the many influences Neus has received in her prolific career, specially the imagination-driven intense physicality of Ohad Naharin and Hofesh Shechter. Neus' class is impro-based, focusing on improving the participant's awareness of their movement by listening to the natural path of the movement through the body, with an intuitive and honest approach.
Delicate Beast is beneficial for dancers, actors, circus artists and all physical performers, who are challenged to use different dynamics and get out of their comfort zone while still being fully committed to move with a sense of totality. With this deep embodiment of physicality and high concentration, the participant will be able to then apply this awareness to any choreographies they go on to perform and use the newly gained tools for their own movement devising.
