COLLABORATIONS

Pre-Workshop

We invite you to be part of this journey, in which we will create a contained and safe space to connect with each other, exploring movement and stillness within the water, both individually and collectively.

We will share tools to support and accompany others in their own aquatic experience, dynamics to habit your own space of inner stillness to float and dance a body in the water.

IMMERSION

CI Intensive Workshop

(Jon Brussolo)

 

During this immersion will be time for deepening your contact technique, bringing your dance in touch with nature, exploring non-gravity-dancing in the water, waking up for your yoga practice at the lagoon, learning from the heat of the sweat lodge and enjoying the night-jams. Together we will find new ways to dance and be danced between water and land.
In this workshop different ways of how to interrelate through our physicality, with other bodies and the perception of space are addressed.

Through individual and collective exploration, we will investigate the possibilities of movement, sensations and relationship with physical forces, trying to create impulses that open windows to explore our strength, weight and fall during dance. “Perceiving and exploring the environment as something of which I am a part, affects and affects me as long as my quality of presence is active, sensitive and permeable to what happens.”

Intensive Workshop

(Colectivo agua)

 

We will delve into the exploration of movement and stillness in the water, investigate different ways of embodying and dancing, awakening the body to listen with the skin and get in contact with others from this listening.
