The workshop seeks to question the body’s possibilities and limits, while challenging its natural shape. The main attention will be given to the stage presence, the relation between body and space, the use of the voice on stage (in all its hues), the dealings between two or more bodies, action-reaction exercises and more.«

The workshop takes place in our inclusive space and is open to movers of any background, experience level and age.

Date: 10th of December
Time: 14.00-18.00
