How can the body be fed by restrictions, generating movement through its limits, and be able to touch unusual forms? How can the amplification of focus in speed, weight or emotion influence the action to reach its extremes and challenge the body? This workshop focuses on exercises with physical and situational restrictions to search for states and imaginaries in the body.

Peeping Tom performer Maria Carolina Vieira focuses on exercises with physical and situational restrictions to search for states and imaginaries in the body. Tasks promoting limitations will work here as tools to build a space where the body can use its own intelligence and ability to create movement. The performers are invited to find the constructive side of “being stuck” and to be opened and to surprise themselves with the adaptability of their bodies to restrictive situations.

Through the workshop, the participants will immerse themselves into the specific movement language of Peeping Tom, which finds itself on the borderline between dance and theatre. The company depicts a universe in which the prevailing logic of time, space and atmosphere is questioned, always with a strong focus on the dark side of the individual and community.

Who does it interest?
Professional dancers and vocational dance students. The workshop will be held in English.

Everything at Peeping Tom starts from a hyperrealistic setting. The space feels familiar, such as a retirement home in Vader, two trailer homes in 32 rue Vandenbranden or a living room in Le Salon. The creators then break open this realism and begin to defy the logic of time, space and mood. You become the witness - or rather, the voyeur? - of what usually remains hidden and unsaid, you are taken into subconscious worlds and discover nightmares, fears and desires.

Peeping Tom is a Belgian dance theatre company, founded by Gabriela Carrizo (I/AR) and Franck Chartier (F) in 2000. Since its foundation, it has presented its creations around the world. The company has received several important awards, including and Olivier Award in the United Kingdom for 32 rue Vandenbranden, a Patrons Circle Award at the International Arts Festival in Melbourne as well as several selections for the Belgian and Dutch Theatre Festivals.

Maria Carolina Vieira
Maria Carolina Vieira (1985, Brazil) joined Peeping Tom in 2012, to replace a departing member in 32 rue Vandenbranden.
Graduated in performing arts and with a Master’s degree in theatre and dance, Maria Carolina first developed her corporal techniques through sports. An accomplished rhythmic gymnast, she was part of the Olympic Brazilian Confederation Team at the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000. As a dancer, she has worked with the Brazilian dance companies: Siedler Cia de Dança (2007-1008) and Grupo Cena 11 Cia de Dança (2010-2012). As an actress, Maria Carolina has acted in professional theatre groups as well as in television shows, films and publicity spots. Singing is an important part of her artistic path too and she usually uses her voice as a fundamental tool in the pieces she takes part in. 
More recently, she has been collaborating with companies in Belgium and Florianópolis, working on interdisciplinary projects involving music, dance and theatre.
