You are welcome to join into a meeting point of touch, contact & senses in dance. A deep dive into the subjects of consent in verbal and non-verbal forms, and a learning process in how to empower other people and be empowered by your partners.
In this workshop we will explore the edges/borders of Dance, Contact Improvisation and touch with physical exploration and the psychological effects of movement and touch – motion into emotion, and emotion into motion.
Dance is the playground of non-verbal communication, where everything can be presented, represented and played with. It is a field we all feel, yet it can be sometime confusing to interpret the meanings and intentions behind the actions.
In this workshop we will learn to listen and to speak with the body and another partner’s body, and we will also bring the non-verbal aspects into verbal forms.
We will explore and research how empowerment and consent can be brought from one realm to another.
PRACTICALITIES and CLARIFICATION –
