WILD ART NATURE CAMP 2023
It is already the 7th edition of the summer dance camp series organized in collaboration with Nóra Hajós, Loco-Logomotion team and La Ionel’s Pension! We are grateful for this collaboration that grow into a friendship! We are happy to invite you for a 6-day long creative journey, 30 kms from Cluj Napoca, into the landscapes of Transylvanian mountains, the Valley of the Somesul Rece. Come, EXPERIMENT, PRACTICE and PLAY with DANCE, enjoy NATURE and togetherness in and around the riverside studio!
About the practice:
LOGOMOTION through NATURE DREAMING
LOGOMOTION is an improvisational dance/narrative form wherein movement and words spring spontaneously from a common source. The performative form was developed by Simone Forti. She quotes: “It’s been a way for me to know what is on my mind. What is on my mind, before I think it through, while it is still a wild feeling in my bones.“
Nóra will lead us through a warm up, that focuses on inner sensations, using moment to moment awareness tuning, then we will explore spontaneous moving and talking arising in the moment.
Every move is a valuable one, that can carry information. As we move images can come to our mind and we can unfold those images via words and movements, until they have a life.
During the practice of Logomotion/the class will mainly use observations, explorations in nature, some possible spontaneous writings and focused studio time for moving and talking in a laboratory setting. The class will spend some time outside of the studio observing and being in the nature surrounding.
In addition, NATURE DREAMING, part of Nora’s longtime practice and study of Process oriented movement work (founded by Arnold and Amy Mindell) notices and appreciates intentional movements while also explores unintentional and spontaneous movements as the seeds of our on-going day and -nighttime dreaming process. Nature dreaming shows a way to access and unfold our hidden dance as well as gets us in touch with our dreaming while awake process. Working alone and together as a group, we will discover the creativity of our dreaming process and the way our creations teach us about life. Founders of Process work Amy & Arny Mindell say, “When we explore these movements with awareness we can enrich our experience of everyday life and discover ourselves as unending creativity. “
Nóra Hajós (H/USA) started her dance studies at age 4 in her native Hungary. As a young adult, she searched for open forms which led her to contact improvisation, authentic movement and postmodern dance in the USA. For the past 26 years, she has been exploring, teaching and performing. Nóra studied in-depth with Steve Paxton (the originator of contact improvisation), Lisa Nelson (Tuning Scores), and Simone Forti (Logomotion).
