Peter Jasko has been involved in the dance community as a performer, choreographer and teacher in Europe and abroad for over 15 years. He holds a deep desire to revive a space for instinct in dance, with a sincere interest in body-space-connection awareness. He sees beauty everywhere—in all bodies, emotions and personal histories. Through his choreographies, performances and workshops he presented around the world, Jasko abolishes the hierarchies and divisions between body and mind by favoring an open dance that encourages deep consciousness, in a difficult and fragile process towards balance.
As of late, his artistic practice draws a space beyond tradition and dance training, deconstructing and deserting academic forms without erasing personal movement histories. In his classes Deep Movement Consciousness, he yearns to create a space for artistic self-discovery, a space beyond ambient noise (self-judgment, representative movement, states and expressions) allowing instead the sensitive and energetic body to generate fully conscious movement.
Jasko goes for a run everyday. Not for sportsmanship but as an exercise in attuning oneself to the smallest, most imperceptible sensations. He believes that this same awareness can and should be applied to whatever technique in dance. This approach leads to an exploration and a questioning of the structures, the contexts, the physical and mental forms that govern choreographic gesture. By moving away from modes of representation, expressions and academic states, Peter Jasko promotes a return to a dance of openness and breathing, a search for balance, which leaves space for all forms of interpretation.
