Contact Improvisation, Movement development, Authentic Movement and Bodywork

(deutscher Text weiter unten)

On the beautiful canarian vulcano island of La Palma we have the luxury to explore, nourish, investigate and enjoy the rich, abundant and overflowing life of our senses and organs and use these imputs for expression in contact improvisation and solowork. 

The organs are our inner home and the source of emotional intelligence;
Our sensing organs are extensions of the inner organs through which the colors, tastes, scents, sounds, vibrations and sensations of the outer world stimulate and nourish our soft core.

From this place and space dancing is effortless, multidimensional and fully engaged with all of our internal and external senses.

Auf der wunderschönen kanarischen Vulkan Insel La Palma haben wir den Luxus zu forschen, uns zu nähren, einzutauchen und einfach zu genießen: den Reichtum, die Fülle und den Überfluß des Lebens, der Natur in uns und um uns herum, wie wir sie durch unsere Sinne und Organe erfahren und durch Contact Improvisation und Soloarbeit in den Ausdruck bringen. 

Die Organe sind unser inneres zu Hause und der Kern unserer emotionalen Intelligenz.
Unsere Sinnesorgane sind Erweiterungen der inneren Organe durch die wir Farben, Geschmäcker, Gerüche, Geräusche, Empfindungen erfahren und dadurch unseren weichen Kern stimulieren und nähren. Von diesem Ort aus ist Tanzen mühelos, multidimensional und „fully engaged“ mit all unseren inneren und äußeren Sinnen.

Unterrichtssprachen sind deutsch und englisch

 Price for Workshop: 275.- - 375.- Euro (depending on what you can afford)

La Bonita - the beautifull - is another name for La Palma, one of the most beautifull places on this planet. There we will explore, dance and work for 5-6 hours per day in a inspiriering round pavillon.
