The work will focus on expanding awareness of the body, giving voice to it's different layers, weaving imagery landscapes and textured realities through movement. We will zigzag between real and imagined, between doing and observing, expanding an awareness of the endless flow of impulses, recognizing one’s own inherent power to choose which one to follow, form and embody. We will create from a restful place of listening. By ‘shifting the eye’ simultaneously within and outside oneself, one notices the focus of attention. In following it, engaging with it and expanding it through the body, we will discover and work with the creative potential of every moment. The practice aims at unfolding the body into a resourceful, multi-layered, ever flowing, response-able entity, available to the continuous emergence of sensations, feelings and images, attending to what currently is.
