Moving beyond effort – Dance Workshop
How do we go further in dance and movement?
How do we push the ability of the body to expose an honest expression through physicality?
And what lays beyond the physical body?
Beyond effort, beyond body and mind, we find freedom of movement and expression. We push through movement & physical practice to discover what is on the other side.
Where: Studio CityGate, Brussels, Belgium
When: September 1st + 2nd | 2018
In this two day workshop, we will push our physical and mental borders, in such a way that allows us freedom and creativity. We will go to the limit and cross it just to get a taste of what’s beyond. We’ll practice being out of our comfort zone and learn to enjoy it.
The work is inspired by Somatic & Shamanic practices (such as ILM method, Feldenkrais & various breathing exercises), that come together to help us have the experience of extreme physical conditions – in a safe and grounded way, allowing us to open up and discover new ground within the body-mind.
