WORKSHOP Indrek Kornel - How do I perceive myself and space?

Sat 21. November 2020 at 15:00 - 17:00

Kaja Cultural Centre · E. Vilde tee 118, 12914 Tallinn, Estonia

The workshop is inspired by the "passing through" system of movement composition created by David Zambrano. In the workshop, we move individually in the room, remaining in contact with other participants and the environment.

At first we learn to notice our own body, then we learn to perceive space. The workshop uses a variety of exercises to develop the participants' sense of the body. How are we situated in the room? How are our limbs situated in space? Is my gaze active? If I'm told to STOP, do I stop immediately?

We notice how we move in space and how individual decisions change the way the whole group works.

We start the group movement with walking, alternating it with running. We try to find a common perception where there is no leader in the group - all decisions to stop or move are made collectively.

The participant learns to connect better with the surrounding environment by being present in the moment and making spontaneous decisions while moving in a group.
