Sharing The Unknown — Yoga & Action Theater™
Friday, 05.05.17, 15:45 – 18:15
Human relations are a dynamic process. They demand that we constantly readapt to the changes taking place both within us and in others as our respective needs evolve. Our partner then becomes the mirror of our ability to stay present and to open ourselves to what arises in the moment. Thus, each of us contributes to create and enrich a story, which is never fixed and whose end can never been known in advance.
In this workshop, we will examine the mechanism of relationship in improvisation. Working in duo or trio, we will investigate the basic aspects of interaction between human beings i.e: movement, vocal expression (sound), feeling states, eye contact, touch and language. We will see how spatial positioning impacts the meaning of the communicated content. We will also see how each action, whether it is physical or mental affects relationship.
We will explore the multiple response choices to our partner’s action, for instance, how to support or reinforce what our partner does but also how to break free of expectations, habits and unconscious pattern, following our imagination and our physical experience.
