1. About the workshop
Going-IN is a deliberate physical, mental and energetic action that guides me in my artistic practice. During this workshop we will focus on the primal and ever-changing relation between our anatomy and self-perception. By addressing the body both as an archive of somatic experiences and a landscape that needs to be re-discovered- we will be Going-IN.
We will start warn-up with slow and deep bodily work, in order to awaken the awareness of our physical structure and how it shapes our mental spaces. Gradually in individual and group work we will drop words, scan spatial relations and map our actions.
Using lead improvisations and writing tasks we will allow our bones and muscles intuitions act as storytellers. Letting those stories guide a self-discovery process, spark inspiration and sharpen our performative presence as movers, artists and humans.
Key words | anatomy, layers, biography, unconscious, landscape, writing, locomotion
