MIND. YOUR BODY. -workshop
The workshop is to establish a pure body-mind connection in creative physical activity & dancing.
The workshop is for the professional and professionally minded dancers interested in exploring the anatomic fantasy of the structure holding together one’s body and mind.
The workshop aims to find the ease of mind while shifting between different anatomical tasks and methods of physicality one uses in contemporary dance. We deal with constructions, objects, lines, points, muscle tone, weight shift, expansion, reach and reorientation taking all of the information into group work.
