In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2020 - Meeting in the Virtual!
We will go on a journey – it’s an invitation to presence, to inhabit our own body and our experiences. Together we will create strategies through a virtual interface for playing, learning, and broadening our perspectives. This workshop is intended to be an encouragement to identify, access and expand our unique repertoire of senses and feelings. We use 3 different doors as an approach: presence, time to play and intention. When we inhabit our body, we find ways to connect with the environment. How does the inside meet the outside? Which ways are there? We explore the potential of our perceptions, sensations, memories and secrets - our oracle body.
We open up for failure, playfulness and care.
