In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017
‚The Breathing Body’ allows us to connect to the mindfulness of movement, space and conscious connections in our dance. Breathing is our first awaking impulse to connect and prepare our awareness. Evolutionary movement development reminds us of our animal nature and our own physiological development. Letting movement and sounds come out of inner sources guides us to the next place. Our inner witness helps us to move into the dance, alone and with others, by listening to our inner impulse and by keeping a neutral, non-judgmental space inside. Breathing through the rythms of our moving body, finding the valleys and peaks of our dances.
Using fundamentals from Feldenkrais®, Early Childhood Movementdevelopment and Applied Anatomy this workshop connects somatic principles with improvisation. It addresses our ability to be present with each breath, each movement, each contact, to be in an awakened and alert space.
People of diverse physicalities are very welcome and encouraged to attend. Unfortunately not accessible for wheelchair users.
