Shakya: Sound & Silence
The Art of Music Improvisation

(experience in playing an instrument or in singing required)

In this workshop we will explore musical meetings on the base of spontaneous improvisations. We encompass our musical journey from a space of inner stillness. We let go of any concept, any intention, any need to perform or to “do it right”. We focus on the beauty and uniqueness of every sound happening regardless of habitual judging. The more we are present in each moment and each note we play the more we are able to connect with the source of true spontaneity within us that is waiting to carry our playing.

Also we will experiment with different frames and structures that can help us to not get lost in the infinity of possibilities but to go deeper into the meetings with a chosen focus like melody/accompaniment, call/response, rhythm/tune etc. In all this we strengthen our ability to listen, to receive while we are playing, to be non-doing and – to have fun!

Sus Palm: Cranio Sacral Balancing

Introduction to the fluid and energetic field of Cranio Sacral Therapie.
We are connecting with the tides of the spinal fluid and the center energieline in the body.
In partnerwork we give space to feel the inner realm and invite deep relaxation.
This way we can regenerate and reorganise ourselves. New impulses and impressions can be integrated on physical, mental and emotional level.
Embracing everything that is there with an open heart.

Taro : Aliveness Art

To jump into the unknown with the interplay of dance, voice, sound-, melodie-instruments and the miracle of improvisation.

Here you can not do anything wrong but also nothing right.
Its that openess in which you do not know what will happen next and where you invite yourself to be astonished & surprised.

You percieve that outlawed attention and you recognize that the play of the elements dances by Itself.
Shakti is not still she changes all the time her quality, sometimes wild or mild or stormy...


I love to dive into the space of improvisation of sound & movement.
To surrender fully to the unknown and to be surprised how “life is playing along”.

Vega: "Riding with the wind, flowing like the waters"

I am interested about Flow, in dance - and in life as well -- What is restricting us from flowing...? Resistance, that we don´t let go, surrender and follow what is there...

Water finds always the easy way - it does not try to push itself through the stone. It is every moment ready to change it´s direction, force and volume. That´s what I am interested to explore in dance as well. Use of minimum effort and ease. Readyness to change directions. When we are listening the body-time, we are automatically having the right timing... Being too slow, or too fast is taking away the natural flow - but when we are able to feel the right timing in all deeper layers of our body - we get all advantages of momentum, suspension and swing...

Flow can be slow or fast - like magma or like wind -

We will work with tools of contact-improvisation, as well as solo-work and group improvisation as well.

Welcome to find your flow!

"...I am living in Berlin, and I Looooove it...! I am in fire with dancingmovingshakingsqueezingturningslidingrolling my body. ...And by singing and breathing, I am sounding my soul out! I am spiralling and biking, often performing in sweet streets and strange spaces of this beloved city..."
I Love dancing and kissing, I love fighting and feeling the fire, I love honesty and authenticity, spontaneity and extremes. Flow and Intuition. Every moment can be amazing, and every moment can be boring. You create the Air you are breathing in."

I love sweating
I love fighting
I love weight
I love gravity
I love fire
I love passion
I love papaya
I love coconut

Love me tender, love me sweet
Always let me go
I need to feel the wind in my hair, otherwise I die.
I need to feel the fire in my heart, otherwise I say goodbye.

I´m an angel,
I´m a devil
I´m everything in between.
I am a child,
I am a baby

I only need to be seen.
