»When I’m standing still, or not moving, I understand nothing at all« (H.M. Enzenberger) – By focusing on the process of understanding which is coupled with the being-in-motion concept, we wish to take up the idea of an anti-stillstand, i.e. a state of lasting change. The contents of the different workshops serve as tools which enables one to release, allow for change and continue. According to Minako Seki, the inner body finds itself in motion although not showing physical movement, and continues to perform »the extraordinary choreography of being alive«. Magdalena Meindl offers the perspective of the young generation with which she navigates through the »thick presence«: dancing with the trouble. Also, Nora Amin, the Egyptian choreographer, lecturer and writer, touches on this process when speaking of dance as a medium of political resistance, transformation and healing.
