Dance with Kea Tonetti – voice with Tivitavi
Butoh Dance – Sensitive DanceVoice – Hara Yoga

Where: Stromboli Island, Sicily, Italy

When: 30 June – 8 July 2018

The meeting with nature brings healing, awakens vitality, opens senses, frees and empties the head, integrates us to our wild nature, that since always is living inside of us, gives inner peace and silence.

Letting ourselves be permeated by the magic of the beautiful volcanic island of Stromboli and its elements, rich in healing substances, we’ll expand the breathing and the body sensations, opening the dance and the voice in union with the breathing of the sea, the stones, the Vulcan, the animals, the birds, the wind, the stars, the sun, the moon…..

We’ll awaken ancient marine and terrestrial memories, we’ll practice on the volcanic beaches, in the seawater, on the lava rocks, on the Volcano mountain, we’ll walk in a state of meditation and listening.

The Nature elements will be our teachers. This journey will let us incorporate the energy of Nature, letting their Spirits dance, speak and sing. We’ll liberate emotions and archaic impulses, unearth personal and collective memories, that tells of the encounter between man and nature, we’ll open ourselves to listening and sensing, in a receptive and irrational way, we’ll let ourselves be danced and sang, open to living totally the present moment, letting forms and sounds become expression of the soul.

Meet the Beauty of Nature as a part and mirror of us and listen to the silence inside of us, that permeates everything and generates every sound, form and movement, allowing the invisible to become visible. Offer a dance, a chant, a prayer to ourselves, to Mother Earth, the Sea, the Volcano, the Sun, the Moon and the Universe.

Practices from Butoh dance, Sensitive dance, Hara Yoga, Nada Yoga, Overtone singing and Sciamanism will allow us to consciously interact with our body, our breath and our voice, in order to awake our own dance and voice in union with Nature.

For Sensitive Dance water practices please bring a diver’s mask, diving fins and thermal shirt.

At the end of the workshop, there will be a Performance of the group, in different places of the island with the live-music of Tivitavi (Tibetan bells, didgeridoo, drumming, flutes, voice and natural sounds), who will play also for some moments of the workshop.

The workshop is open to everybody!

Kea Tonetti:
Dancer, choreographer, performer and teacher, after a long formative path in the dance which started in 1980, going through different forms of dance from classical to contemporary, tribal and ritual, in 2000 arrives at Sensitive Dance and Butoh Dance, that will allow her to go more towards a search for the essence of dance, which goes beyond the outer forms. Her life, art and teaching have been enriched since 1995 with spiritual, inner and shamanic paths. Her Dance of Soul, wants to go beyond the definitions of style to embrace something wider, the Being, the union of mind, heart and body, the Presence, the dancing touching the deep of human soul, the return to the original body, free from the social covering, driven to dance by the force that flows in life, which is everywhere, it is breath, prana, vital energy. Her workshops are dives in body and soul, enrich the awareness of the laws of movement in dance, give transformation, rooting, vitality, freedom of expression, catharsis; opening the body and the Being to the Presence and to the Beauty and accompanied by the live – music.
