10th November, h. 2pm > 7pm | 11th November, h. 10am > 4pm
The main focus of this workshop is a conscious research of our body/mind/soul unification, so we can deeply enjoy the intrinsic process of metamorphosis in the spirit of dance.
Through a continuous exploration of our past collective memories, we can strike a vein of abundant creative resources, enriching the essence of our life.
The body is a receptacle of time. Body resonance is a key to opening up the doors of an ever-changing world inside and outside of ourselves, which helps the body to unfold its secrets, holding them up until they shine and tremble. Everything is in resonance with each other. Through a dialogue with our body, we can learn to be moved by inner and outer forces, thus realizing we are a part of the Universe. A dance of metamorphosis inevitably appears.
