Trinidad Martinez • Possible Stillness


Possible Stillness

Sunday 7th of May | 15:45 – 18:15


This workshop is an invitation to explore timing and the edges of it. Going to stillness or not-movement, freezing and listening to what is there, playing with pauses in a kind of radical way. How do we experience the “non-movement”, which is, nevertheless, impossible? In which manner it develops? It is about enjoying the wonderful paradox of stillness.

The word “Dienstag” says already so much. I love dancing. I love drinking coffee with my friends. I love the silence and the sound. You and you and I and we. I feel the dance is about this. But to put it into words is difficult.
