During 2002-2005 Frucek was a member of Wim Vandekeybus’ Ultima Vez, creating Blush (stage and film versions) and, Sonic Boom.

They regularly give workshops at international festivals and in vocational schools. From 2006 - 2011 both Frucek and Kapetanea were on the teaching faculty at the Athens State School for Dance. Since 2012 Frucek is member of the teaching personnel of the University Ludwik Solski State Drama School of Krakow in Poland.



CLASS DESCRIPTION
Fighting Monkey practice offers a variety of ‘movement situations’, designed to test and advance your tactical situational awareness. We will be using diverse objects and tools to engage in dynamic experimentation, in order to study our responses to complex environmental stimuli. We will examine the architecture and landscape of our physiology taking into account various aspects of evolutionary pressures.
We believe that by encouraging strategy development and improvisation we challenge our limits using difficulty and danger to develop strength, adaptability and softness. For that reason we will invest time in exploring creative tasks that lead to neurologically efficient solutions that demand minimal energy. Thus, establishing the most essential principles that give birth, nourish and restore forgotten movement patterns and mobility; accessing a powerful potential of simple human motion.
