Gaga/People & Fluid Identities (Waiting list)

Workshop with Tanja Saban
In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2022

The quality of our perception determines the quality of our movement. we enter the territory of anatomy – our multi layered internal landscapes – coming into clarity with our sensory body through movement, imagery and touch. We differentiate layers, refine our sensory awareness and integrate it relative to how we sequence movement in our bodies and the development of our compositional / choreographic sense. From there we develop our creative process on embodying and connecting with sound and space – inner body / interpersonal space / collective space / universal space. In a playful way we devise choreographic situations in which we explore how we move through the different layers of space. We build our compositional sense on the understanding that in our sensory experience everything is relational, how dramatic tension lives in the principles of contrast, polarity & unity and how that allows our dancing bodies to inhabit and morph into a wide scope of states and expressions.
