ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Corinna Didjurgeit (dance) and Violeta Koleva (percussion) will take you on a journey into the female body through dance, sound and rhythm. This is a journey to the roots of the contemporary dance and our artistic, sensitive abilities. The experience of the female powers and abilities is especially tangible during dancing. Only here we can understand the depths, the inherent powers and our connection to each other and to our world. In the contemporary ritual our inner knowledge finds a way back into our lives. It allows us to experience the connection with our inner being more deeply and creates a bridge to the inexpressible levels, which we can understand and express during the dance and through our bodies. We are guided by the questions why it is so important nowadays that we activate our inner knowledge in dance and through dance and that we women dance together.
THE CREATIVE PART
The workshop has to parts. We partly work with live percussion. You can also bring your drum.
In the first part of the workshop we explore in guided improvisations and contemporary movement practices the essence and power of movement, activate inner rhythms and empower the inhabit feminine forces in dance. Thereby we deepen and sensitise our sensual awarness and experience our moving body as powerful tools of creation and high awarness. In group movements we dive into the rhythms, sounds and forms of our bodies to awaken our inhabit forces. In guided breath and contemporary awareness practices we enable our mind to enter our sensual awarness to gain a deeper understanding of us and the laws of creation, dynamics and energies in that we dance. Hereby we experience the relationship between movement and our sensual awareness in its power.
In the second Part of the Introduction we create the Contemporary Ritual. Choreographic elements and sequences that came up in first part of the workshop let us dive deep into movement and rhythm to find trust and joy in the power of a feminine moving group. A flexible structure will guide us through our common dance.

ABOUT THE MEANING OF A CONTEMPORARY RITUAL
The contemporary ritual opens a certain and save environment for growth. It is a place where knowledge freely arise that is linked to contemporary subjects and actual themes. Today it is a space to remember and to turn towards our inner experiences as a form of knowledge and ability. For women in present society it is considered particularly important to remember their roots and abilities and come together in groups to strenghten. The group is an important place to help to know themselves. In finding their common abilities women find trust in their inhabit wisdom and give space to express. New approaches of togetherness, ideas of societies and families can be rethinked and created. Through this way of gathering we are able to stand challenging times. They are an essential component to develop new perspectives for
personal and collective growth.
