– explore the expressive potential of the body through Contact improvisation and dance

During this training course we will:
– explore the principles of the creative process – a way to remove mental, emotional and physical barriers in order to bring impression and expression in a vital flow based on Anna Halprins life art process
– investigate ways of authentic expression and conscious connection through theatre, dance and contact improvisation
– explore systemic ritual tools and the medicine wheel in order to get direction and clarity on our life path. Inspired by rituals of indigeonous tribes (Mexica and Lakota tribes) and body based work with archetypes we will strengthen the connectedness within the community and unleash hidden inner potential
– play with and within the forest to revitalize our body and spirits and as source of inspiration and stillness to fully connect to our essence and find out what we really search for.
