Een dans/bewegingsworkshop gebaseerd op improvisatie en geschikt voor mensen met een visuele beperking en andere dansers die geblinddoekt dansen willen verkennen.
We verkenningen drie verschillende aspecten:
2. saamhorigheid, verbondenheid en beweging met anderen
3. beweging in de buitenruimte, horen, aanraken en genieten van de ruimte.
In de korte tijd die we hebben zullen we ons zelfbewustzijn vergroten en zullen we onze beweging en verbeelding door gesloten ogen vergroten.
We onderzoeken ook de saamhorigheid, het aanraken, het veilig bewegen en in de ruimte zijn. Door dit deel leren we angst en verwarring om te zetten in acceptatie, bevrijding, vertrouwen, vreugde en leren we niet te snel te oordelen en diepe verbindingen met anderen te creëren.
In het laatste deel gaan we de ruimte verkennen, ons gehoor openen, onze zintuigen reuk en aanraking onderzoeken, en de ruimte op verschillende manieren zien en van genieten.
De workshop zal buiten plaats vinden, in de tuin van de BSO. Bij slecht weer zullen we naar binnen in de studio verplaatsen.
This is a dance/movement workshop based on improvisation tasks and suitable for people with visual impairment and other dancers/movers that want to explore dancing blindfolded.
We will have short explorations on three different aspects:
1. body movement,
2. togetherness, connecting and moving with the others and
3. movement in the outside space, hearing, touching and enjoying the space.
In the short time we will have we will enhance our self-awareness and we will expand our movement and imagination through closed eyes.
We will also explore the togetherness, touch, safe travelling into the space together with safe being. Through this part we learn to transform fear and confusion into acceptance, liberation, trust, joy, no judgment and deep connections with others.
In the last part we are going to explore the space, open our hearing, smelling and touching senses and see and enjoy the space through different ways.
It will happen outdoors, in the garden of BSO. In case the weather doesn’t allow us, we will transfer it inside the studio.
