Oskar Mauricio

His artistic interest began in 2007, when he was introduced to street art, Contemporary african dance and fire manipulation, through a group of young performers in the neighborhood where he was living at that time in Ciudad Bolivar, Bogota.
During his time at Circo Ciudad, Oskar was inspired by his peers and creative environment, enabling him to develop as a performer and tune his personal training skills. Soon after, Oskar was accepted in the two year course at the National Circus School, Circo Para Todos in Cali Colombia, where he deveoloped an origional Aerial Bicycle Act with Andrea Rios.

Following the Aerial Bicycle tours, Oskar meet Soledad Gomez in Argentina, who became his new aerial partner for the Kiebre Duo and the creation of their act SOl_O_S. With this act they participated in festivals in Europe such as Cirque Du Demain in Paris where they won the Silver Medal, and the Young Stage circus festival in Basel, Switzerland where they received the audience choice, and the Gold Medal. Also in the ‚‘Artistika‘‘ Festival in Visp-Switzerland with the Second Prize and the Public Prize .

 

 

Oscar will teach the following workshops:

ROPE WORKSHOP

This workshop is based on the awareness of the space-time of our body in the air. And how the circular sensation in the exploration of the movement, harmoniously or unintentionally, can take us to personally unique and infinite spaces in our language.
Every time more and more, we forget as an aerialist, in emphasizing the importance of simplicity and of the whole path that our body and mind inhabits when suspended itself, whether in favor of an exercise, transition or a simple climb.

Based on the technique that aerial straps provide us, we can transfer their valuable information to the rope without losing it‘s essence, reaching similar positions, allied to the bodily possibility of each of the participants. Simultaneously, we work on the acrobatic movements in the rope to improve the tempos and the elevations, significantly for the technique movements.

***SUITABLE FOR ALL AERIALISTS (Silks, Rope, Trapeze, Hoop…). YOU SHOULD HAVE A INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED LEVEL IN YOUR DISCIPLINE.***

Prerequisites
Rope Intermediate oder Aerial Silk Level 5

Dates 24.11., 25.11., 28.11.
Time 18:00 – 19:30
Place Domgasse

STRAPS WORKSHOP

This workshop is based on the exploration of movement and the awareness of our body in suspension in one or two arms. Like animals expressing their being through their conscious instincts and their body awareness, we will liberate ourselves from any tension or habits that are preventing us from finding our natural way of moving on the straps, having so many habits from the past. A global language, infinite and not completely definable.
These ideas will be applied to some basic principles of aerial work such as suspension, total elevation, extension, inversion, stretching, and rotation.
We will experiment in various „tempos” and in different directions to move our bodies in a strongly dynamic way. We will give emphasis and full attention to correct and give a deep look at the basic positions attending the movement as a base work in the straps, arriving at each position in an anatomical and comfortable way for our body understanding more what we want to reach. The aim is to find the most natural way of moving in the air and to inspire aerial artists to integrate this new awareness into their own artistic approach.
