02mayalldaySomatic Improvisation Workshop

Event Details

A day of movement and body awareness in effortless interaction with others.

Time to arrive, to sense what’s happening in each moment, wondering with a curious mind through the sensing body, finding desires to move alone and with others. In an easeful frame we’ll explore Somatics & Improvisation …

Somatic stands for ways to listen to the body and moving more from inner motivations than copying outer shapes. Joerg’s work is informed by developmental movement patterns. They connect to the fundamental principles of organising movements, which we learned mainly as babies and toddlers. Working with body systems like bones & joints or the elastic web of our connective tissue gives juicy qualities to our dancing.

Improvisation benefits from trying to know less, listening to oneself and others, a non-judgemental mindset and the courage to nibble on the edges of one’s comfort zone.

No previous experiences needed to join this workshop, just enough openness to try things out.
