In this workshop we will look at our body as a collective, tap into the wisdom of our creative centre and dance to swinging beats with our cells / roommates. Every session will open with a circle holding foot activation, kundalini inspired exercises and time to focus on our breath. By connecting to our senses and our surrounding, we will practice the art of noticing until we bring our attention down to the dust particles. We will transform our breath into a healing hum and explore our resonant selves. Humming as an act of secrecy that encourages us to drift away but also captivates us. We will take our healing hum to public spaces in the hope of positively affecting the collective vibratory levels. Other choreographic practices we dedicate ourselves to propose guided meditative expeditions, drawing bacteria and dance recipe writing.
We close the workshop every day with a fermentation ritual, which consists of making our very own ginger beer. At the end of the week, the bug is ready to bubble in your homes.
