WeMove Studio invites you to this special workshop with Anat Greenberg. Come and explore how to move from tension to attention.
In this workshop we will explore the following questions:
-How can we invite softness in our bodies without collapsing?
-What is a good amount of tension to keep the body in a “ready” state but without stress?
-What will be the texture of playing with the density of our muscle tone? How can playing with this bow of light to dense can be part of our dance?
When listening to someone we need to let our thinking take a step back so we can hear and sense the other. When we dance we do this shift by letting go of excess muscle tension so we can sense subtleties in our partner’s body. Our water element teaches us about flow and our skeleton about structure.
Playing with these questions will allow us to focus on the physical flow of the movement – big or small and from there a dialogue in dance can start. We will share some basics of Contact techniques around giving & taking weight and aspects of the communication through touch. There will be a mix of detailed exercises and more open frames to explore and dance.
All experience levels are welcome. You just need to have an idea of what contact improvisation is.
Artist & Facilitator
Exploration of the physical body and movement has always been a part of my life. My journey started young as a Gymnast and led me later into contemporary dance, Release technique, Contact Improvisation, Yoga, Capoeira, Pilates, Body-mind centring, authentic movement, Ilan Lev method, and more.
Since first discovering CI 15 Years ago it has become a vast source of my Inspiration, Passion, Joy, and personal growth…and still is. I have been dancing, teaching, learning, performing, and organizing in the CI world since then.
Exploration through movement and dance is for me a practice of presence, I hope to bring the Nature of questioning as a source of curiosity and engagement.
