In the frame of Winter Tanz 2017/18
Based on the Body-Mind Centering approach, this workshop focuses on the highest anatomical level of the human body - the cranium. The human skull and the facial bones consist of several connected, as well as individual bones of different embryological origin. In addition to their function of supporting and protecting the organs, this part of the body is responsible for our thinking, our emotions and the sensory perceptions. Cognitive, physical and psychological experiences are stored there. We will explore and expand on all these aspects by imaginative visualization and physical movement. Our breath as the connecting element will play an essential role. If it is consciously used between the cranial and facial bones, the metabolism can be stimulated and stored stress can be reduced. This affects physical alignment, supports better grounding and creates new positive impulses and movement qualities. Together and through the dance, we will explore, develop and celebrate these new discoveries.
