Workshop di anatomia esperienziale con Eva Karczag

In queste lezioni avremo la possibilità di accedere e rivisitare le fonti e le peculiarità  del movimento individuale, e di affinare un linguaggio di movimento personale per renderlo chiaro ed articolato, efficiente ed efficace. Usando l’osservazione, il tocco diretto e l’immaginazione esploreremo il panorama interno e arriveremo ad una consapevolezza corporea del peso, della leggerezza e del respiro. Impareremo a fidarci dell’innata capacità del nostro corpo di muoversi con naturalezza attraverso l’improvvisazione e la gioia del danzare liberamente. Il nostro punto di partenza sarà il corpo e la nostra strategia sarà il gioco.

presentazione aperta a tutti di e con Eva Karczag venerdì 25 Marzo h22

Sabato 26 Marzo h14-17 h18-21
Domenica 27 Marzo h10-13 h14-17
Possibilità di continuare il lavoro il lunedì 28 Marzo h10-13

26 and 27 March

Experiential Anatomy Workshop

taught by Eva Karczag

open presentation of and with Eva Karczag friday 25 March at 10pm

In our rushed world, we rarely have time to stop and reflect. In these classes space and time are a given, a chance to revisit and access our individual movement sources and idiosyncrasies, and to hone a personal movement language that is clear and articulate, efficient and effective. Using observation, directed touch, and imagery we will explore inner landscape and arrive at an embodied understanding of weight and lightness, breath, and the flow that rises within an environment of internal body spaciousness. We will learn to trust our bodies’ innate capacity for ease, and by absorbing new-found physical insights within improvisation, aim to taste integrated openness, buoyant suppleness and the delight of moving freely. Our starting point will be the body and our strategy will be play.

Sat 26 from 2 to 5 pm and from 6 to 9
Sun 27 from 10 to 13 and from 14 to 17
possibility to keep going the work  Monday morning
