Workshop - ID MOTION
Datum: 10. & 11. Sept 2022
Uhrzeit: 16:00 - 18:30h
In this workshop, we will be focusing with speed and precision. So as to explore the wide range of possibilities that our bodies in movement offer, we will go through sequences, tasks of improvisation and creative tools. Playing with different registers will allow us to challenge our comfort zone and invite us to be in constant exploration. Connecting as well with the idea of identity, we’ll develop awareness on our capacity to adapt and morph in different situations.
