S-10 / UnlOcking

Workshop with Nora Amin
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2019

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 traces of the personal memory, focusing on experiences of pain and confrontation. Based on this 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 and group work 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.
