Unfolding and revealing the unique expression
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.” Martha Graham
We invite dancers, actors, artists from any performing field together with unexperienced curios participants to enrich their creative skills and discover new ways of research; to explore and enjoy our play- ground.
Our fourth improvisation workshop will focus on the conflicts between patterns, habits of culture, physical environment and the searching of our authentic way of moving and personal expression.
We will offer in the workshop three subjects that will guide us in the exercises and assignments of the improvisation:
- Illustrative and abstract - How do we define ideas to different kinds of movement? Simple action to individual interpretation.
- Hidden and Exposed - ‘Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.’ Michelangelo
- disappearing and appearing - The ability to change and adopt physical characteristics; to sharpen our own presence.
We, Tomer and MIchal will be happy to share and give you the space to play, explore and dance.
Workshop language: German and English
