Ouija: A Dance Partnering Workshop with Eddie Bruno Oroyan and Jessica Eirado Enes

April 6 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on March 24, 2019 at 1:00pm

Saturday April 6 & Sunday, April 7. Pulling from the idea of the ideomotor phenomenon that is considered the ‘invisible player’ in an Ouija board game, our curiosity dives into how to train this subconscious “decider” that works at an underlying level of consciousness where we ‘do’ without thinking. In this partnering class we emphasise hyper listening and empathic moving. We question what it means to join a movement journey and to explore manipulation in solidarity, and we explore how to let that ‘animal spirit’ under our skin move (through) us. Concurrently, we use a series of tools and games to help free the mind to be available and to make quick decisions.

Contact Improv into Ecstatic Heartbeat Dance with Eva Alewa Geueke

April 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Enjoy a wealth of wonderful techniques to warm up the body, including massage and gentle joint mobilization. Try movement games that will stretch your movement horizon and bring you the joy of creative exploration. We trust the divine flow that happens when we put our busy head aside and simply, freely dance with another person or with the floor itself as a partner. Share the space with like-minded people who choose dance as one of their favorite ways to keep balanced and healthy, inside and out. Eva holds safe space for both Contact Improv and Ecstatic Dance. All ability levels welcome.
