LETTING THINGS UNFOLD AND CATCHING THE CENTER
5 - 9 september 2022
THE EMERGENCE OF DANCE. At first we practice something like what comes before it becomes dance. the becoming of dance.
Being in the body. In space. In time. being looked at, being recognized, and recognizing the situation as it is and let it grow from there, finding the logic of the moment.
In this workshop we practice to trust that everything is already there, and we practice to not know what exactly will unfold, and when, and how…
We trust sensation to be our dance and choreograhic material, and our practice to be a collective space-time continuum of becoming….
A workshop in collaboration between Dansalliansen and Danscentrum Stockholm.
