Workshop with Nora Amin
In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2020 - Meeting Live!

A workshop for performers and non-performers with a wish for self-expression and empowerment, with a will for transformation, and with faith in openness and exchange. Through a series of exercises, movement hypothesis and improvisation Nora Amin will explore the inner voice and the embodiment of personal memory, focusing on experiences of pain and confrontation. Especially now this is speaking to our current experiences, unlocking memories of pain, fear and isolation, offering a timely opportunity to share and BE TOGETHER again in a real studio space, handling the situation with care and awareness. Based on this practice the participants will be guided through creating their own physical language and investing their emotional and physical vocabularies in order to reconcile, share and construct personal solos as a performative statement, and as a healing adventure. For those who aim for a profound dance experience that transcends the body, connects the emotions with the corporal, testimony with choreography, and intersects with the social and political.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to current hygiene measures, the workshop is limited to a maximum of 15 people.
