The Metamorphosis Method was founded by Iratxe Ansa and Igor Bacovich. Their vocational dance training and professional careers have shaped the method and their teaching philosophy. Having worked and learned from master teachers and choreographers in the dance world, the couple have brought together their incredible passion for dance and fresh insights to shape a new generation of performing artists.
Through their international travels, Iratxe and Igor have been working with students and professional dancers, translating their movement language and passing this onto dancers of all artistic and creative backgrounds. In 2019 they formed Metamorphosis Dance, a dance company based in Madrid, Spain. The work of the company is based on the Metamorphosis method.
WHAT IT IS
The Metamorphosis method trains excellent technique and physicality through a highly creative process. All areas of the body are worked to give maximum effect. Technical skills become a vehicle to speak with the body and a means of expression to communicate dance at its highest artistic level. Dancers are able to demonstrate brilliant movement skills with physical strength and aesthetic quality.
The work creates opportunities for professional dancers to develop an agile body and mind. Dancers feel empowered, making intelligent, autonomous decisions and take risks with the skills they have developed. With a great sense of determination, barriers are broken and dance becomes limitless.
The work requires dancers with an open mindset, quick to respond to choreography and mature in their approach. Fully present, dancers are equipped with tools to succeed in performance.
Metamorphosis International Residency is an itinerant dance project that consist in a intensive workshop and a choreographic creation.
The results are presented in a theatre as a full evening performance.
