Exploring the interwoven relationship between space, body and emotion through movement and dance
"It began in mystery, and it will end in mystery, but what a savage and beautiful country lies in between." (Diane Ackerman)
These dance sessions are an exploration of the play between our conscious and unconscious, a play that is projected inwards and outwards which shape the experience of who think/feel we are and ultimately what we perceive as "reality".
It is a space where we give a voice to our hidden, non-expressed experiences without needing to understand or comprehend, we explore the mysterious language of the body and the inner dance that is always present within us.
What are the mysteries and why exploring through creative tools such as dance and movement ? What does mystery mean ? Why exploring the unknown and the invisible?
The invisible, the intangible are at the core of what makes us "real" and give form to our experience of Life. There is a constant, ever changing interactions between the self and what we perceive as "outside of self".
Each of us have the innate desire to be/feel free and express ourselves in our own unique, authentic way and we all have different conscious but mostly unconscious motivations and drives to be who we are. However, along Life's journey, we may somehow strayed away from our own truth.
Non-verbal and creative types of expression such as dance and movement help us to intuitively connect to our essence and express ourselves in a way we can not verbally. As we start to move and dance by being present to how/what we feel at a given moment, we start to trust our body, we slowly discover our inner most desires, fears, hopes that are connected to unknown/hidden/repressed primeval and instinctive forces.
It is a session where we can open doors of possibilities to wander and perhaps perceive some aspect of ourselves, beyond the concepts of the mind and knowing.
It is an invitation to connect to our Life force and creative imagination and in that space, we also meet who we perceive as "others".
It is a natural longing for human beings to connect to others through movement /dance to feel and be part of a community/group where we share common human, meaningful values.
