"Space behind. Uncharted trails"...

 

There are two things that hinder the 'unknown' to happened:

  1. Deceptiveness of the eye-site
  2. Physical tensions

In this workshop there will be a possibility to explore in details the use eye-site characteristics and the way it help change usual trajectories into unknown trails. On the way to find courage and playfulness, we will take time for recognition, release of tensions in the body to free the inner space .

Other themes that will be addressed in the workshop are:

  • * The back space - ways, skills and images using the space behind the back and backward movement.
  • * Up side down positions.
  • * Conscious disorientation.
  • * Awakening spirals in the body and in duets
  • * Composing time, movement, space and choices.
  • * Speed in movement as a challenge - awakening concentration and attention.
  • * Letting myself not be aware of the future. Practicing movement towards the unknown.

During my travel high up in the mountains, I realized that fear and anxiety are never behind or ahead of me, they are where I am right now. My courage also awakens just when I make the step above the chimney in the mountain. When I jump from stone to stone, I find myself scared, courageous and funny. This is what this workshop is about - the novelty of each step and movement, in solo, in duet and with in a group.
