This training runs from 18 till 28 June 2018.

chaos and intellect. sensing and reflecting. oneself and one another.

object and subject. attunement and implicit knowing. nonlinear space and time experience, cooperative making and dissolving …

… is what draws me to dance and its various voices and practices.

This class creates a context and the parameters for dedicated dance people to play with and practice just that.

The movement exercises, dance situations and partner touch scores we will engage in offer to differentiate familiar and unfamiliar relationships between energies, organs, forms, notions and the internal/external realms.

Welcoming diverse body minds into an environment, in which we are continuously readying ourselves for what is happening.
