In the workshop with Breanna, former member of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, we will focus on becoming acquainted with our body and the space: how we relate to it, embody it and get lost in it. Working on grounding down and expanding to a fuller reach through our extremities, using exercises including sensory improvisation, rhythm play and guided movements.
