Workshop Description
Workshop DescriptionAll cells in our body are made up of molecules, which are themselves made up of atoms, that are bonded together. Atoms are the particles of which matter is made up. Two or more atoms, equal or different in their composition, that are joined together, form a molecule.
These molecules are composing and recomposing themselves, by breaking and changing the way the atoms are bound together, in an eternal dance, which is becoming possible through the space and energy in between each particle.
As human beings, we can perceive this empty space and energy inside us. We are able to sense that we are made of billions of cells, molecules, atoms, as well as of a vast empty space.
The silence in between movements is the door opener of new possibilities, countless variations and different qualities. There is richness in silence. The richness of empty space.At same time life is a continous exchange of giving and receiving. As the atoms are connected into the form of a molecule, bonds with other people are important and vital for our human life. To recognize and realize this bonding we also need space (big or small as it is) and silence.This workshop would like to experiment with a new way of creation of our personal movement, exploring our body as matter and feeling the empty space and moments of silence between our movements. Guided explorations with concrete and abstract images will help us to find new ways and new interaction with the space and other people.
Each one of us is a beautiful form of life. In nature there are so many expressions of life, each one different, each one so unique and beautiful. Let’s find our form, our unique quality and movement and bring this as a gift to the others. Let’s feel the ties that bind us.
In the stillness we can feel this eternal dance of life.
