14 & 15 October 2023 with Bettina Neuhaus
This workshop investigates the phenomenon of ‘flow’ in body and mind and how to use its qualities for dancing and composing.
Water, with its often flowing and continuous motion, is one of the basic prerequisites for all life. It acts as an essential component within our body and all its processes. At the same time, the qualities of water stimulate our senses and imagination and can support us in any creative activity.
By simple movement actions such as rolling, gliding, swaying or lingering we stimulate the flow of energy in the body and find suppleness and readiness in our movement.
With a fluid attention we can experience more easily the radial, expanding quality of time.
Entering ‘radial time’ allows us to participate fully in the material we create and to be receptive to the actions of our fellow dancers at the same time. By being ‘in’ time we navigate through the constant flow of movement and inspiration as we ‘read’ and create the compositions that emerge in the moment.
