The body as a constantly changing material. Sometimes human. Also insect like, the stormy weather and a muddy pool, or something we cannot put into words. In solo, duo and group work we will look for the subtle signs of change happening in the body. A sway, a new rhythm, a different direction. No plans, simply listening and following at the right time. As we slow down, the body speaks. Images visit us, change the movement, new images come up... Through a process of recognizing and deconstructing movement patterns, we find a pleasant stream of diverse and refined material.


The workshops will be in 3 parts:

- a long warm-up to prepare the body to move out of only human vocabulary
- a deep listening and exploring how to move with the information that is received
- a performance setting, sharing and watching how shapes keep shifting. 



This workshop is suitable for all (professional/non-professional) dancers who are curious to deepen the ability to listen to the body's natural vocabulary, which lies beyond ideas and patterns of movement.
