In this one-day-marathon we’d like to invite you for a visual, sensual and poetic engagement and sense of aesthetics in our dancing.

If “space” could be experienced as a physical and metaphorical ever-changing landscape, can we then accordingly tune ourselves to experience a changing of environments in the awareness of our body’s inner spheres and climates and extend it to a larger “kinesphere” that includes the room, others, and an atmosphere?

We will pay attention to different textures; physical textures, our senses, shapes and design, but also to the movement of our attention
and our mind -as a potential “texture”;
can we “touch with our mind”?
Addressing both the concrete, abstract and the creative intuitive body-mind, we look forward to an intensive, focused ánd playful day together.
Andrew, Stéphanie et Jori
