Maria Nurmela

Marias’ classes are based on somatically oriented dance as well as release technique. Maria also draws inspiration from her many years of experience in the works of choreographers also known as dance artists, such as Tero Saarinen and Susanne Linke, as well as her own interdisciplinary and multi-sensory work processes.
Marias’ classes are divided into two parts. The first half is about researching the potential of one ‘s own body, such as kinetic chains and connections, the flow of movement and the possibilities of one’ s own movement capacity. During the class, the range of motion increases from the center of the body toward the periphery, off-balances, spirals, and drops. The second part of the lesson consists of various improvisation / composition tasks, from which the course participants’ own choreography is built during the course.
Maria’s lessons have been described as interesting artistic and flowing entities with varying choreographic material and various improvisational and composition tasks.
