Contemporary Dance improvisation, Authentic Movement, Somatics Eyes Closed Dance Composition

This workshop is an adventure into the land of (Not) Seeing. Participants will spend the majority of the workshop time either with eyes closed or seeing the (Not) Seeing; exploring the in-depth compositional landscape from within and creating an unexpected sensorial composition without. When closing one’s eyes, an immediate connection to an embodied self emerges, a relief from having to take in the outer impulses, an invitation to turn inward and sense, breath and connect with deeper layers of one’s self. The BodyMind becomes the all-encompassing compass for creating.

How to connect with the inward and create an external awareness of composition, solo, duet, trio and group? How to train a dancer’s awareness to listen, follow, sense, intuit and trust the internal composition and the explicitly subjective outcome.

Contents of the workshop include:

  • Practicing the art of sensing the inner body (soma); interception meets proprioception
  • Inviting compositional elements of dance with eyes closed
  • Questioning the physical language of (Not) Seeing
  • Differentiating different authentic views of Self in motion
  • Sharing artistic structural inputs in the challenge of (Not) Seeing
  • Dancing, composing, sounding and being the change within a sensorial world
