Building on previous collaborations and workshops between Nora Amin and Tanzfabrik, her new workshop The Transformative Body aims to provoke a transformation within/via the dancing body. By employing Nora’s signature choreographic style, the workshop will navigate with a feminist approach towards re-rooting the self, re-visiting corporal memory and creating embodiments of transformation. By Relying on the vocabulary and techniques of Baladi dance, we will find a ritualistic presence that may lead to a transformative dance for each participant.
The workshop will be held in spoken English, follow-up questions for clarification may also be in Arabic or French. No previous dance experience is required. Not all movements will be verbalized in detail, non-verbal communication will be needed as well. Music plays an important role and is used. If needed, a free workshop place for an accompanying assistant will be facilitated for participants with disabilities. Information about our location & studio access in Kreuzberg, which unfortunately not wheelchair accessible, can be found here
