tarot, astrology, dance

In this workshop, we are working with archetypes as fields of energy which birth and unfold into a variety of forms across people, cultures, times, species and star systems. Archetypes form our bodies. And in turn, we reshape the collective unconscious. Form is a highway for the formless. The archetypes we are working with in his instance come from the tarot. Tarot finds its roots in esoteric tradition and as a game. So we will be working with games and ceremony as scores for doing and making dances. Looping between formality and irreverence. All of the tarot cards have astrological rulerships, so the structure of the workshop is tailor-made to explore and attune to the present astrological transits.

Please bring writing/drawing materials. A tarot deck is not necessary. But if you have one, the more the merrier!
