Laughter Somatics with Antoinette Helbing & Sculpting Body-Images with Penelope Morout

The opening week of Unplugged Dance summer program is an exhilarating blend of dynamic dance improvisation, focusing on physical movement, and laughter as a forceful and intimate exploration into the art of letting go.

⫸ Penelope Morout (GR) is an interdisciplinary dance artist interested in creating hybrid projects through the fusion of various mediums.

Sculpting Body-Images is a movement workshop of intense physicality, shaped to challenge the known bodily patterns of each practitioner and to bring awareness to the conscious act of seeing and perceiving the body in relation to interchangeable elements.
