Über die Veranstaltung

Carrying around, cooking, dressing, steering, writing … - compared to our daily live, in dance we can find freedom and space to take care of our arms and let them be part of the whole: Thinking the body as a web of tissues and bones - the shoulder girdle and the arms are inserted into this web as every other part, but still, they play their own roll. In improvisation and in short movement phrases we will be playing with the connection between arms, shoulder girdle and torso: looping back the energy the arms gain for small adjustments or big jumps or using them for stable support on the floor, with a partner, or to balance in the air. The arms will reach out, fall and swing, embrace, dangle, communicate, decorate, pull and push away, spin us and shoot us in the air.  Which mutual alignment of our structures is necessary to distribute the well-known tension around the shoulder girdle to provide effective transmission of forces into the arms as well as back into the whole body? With solo-dancing and also with partnering, contact improvisation and bodywork we explore, get feedback through touch and find a felt logic in full body movement. And thereby develop a feeling for the level of tone we need, discover the places to let go and find the benefit as well as the pleasure of alternating between tension and release.  *  all levels welcome  Price: 170 Early bird (registration until 19.3.24 ) 190 regular 160 Sozo Students  Time: 19.-21.4.2024 Friday: 18- 20.30 Sunday & Saturday: 10-16 (one hour break)  for registration and questions write to:
