Body Balance Black Fusion

Workshop with Gaya Dandara
In the frame of WinterTanz 2022/23

In Body Balance Black Fusion, we focus on the use of movement, with elements of traditional dances from the black diaspora and the activation of the body's own energy centres. Opportunities are given to encourage, experience and explore the balance of body, mind and emotions. The use of the voice as an extension of the body and breathing are also part of the method developed by Gaya Dandara. The workshop is an invitation to all who wish to promote the activation of the body and breathing as a means of maintaining balance.

Accessibility Note
The workshop will be held in spoken German. Questions of clarification can also be asked in English and Portuguese. Small talks and group work as well as touching are planned. With musical accompaniment from the stereo system, which plays an important role. If needed, a free workshop place for an accompanying assistant will be facilitated for participants with disabilities. Information about our location & studio access in Kreuzberg can be found here. For questions or more information, please contact Zoé Duflot & Elisabeth Leopold at workshop@tanzfabrik-berlin.de.
