Bodyscapes &s Landscapes: 

"Our bodies are moving landscapes. Our skin detects the structures of our surroundings. Our hands have their own intelligence and help us adapt to new environments, connect with materiality, become new bodies."

 

A theoretical and physical approach to the connection of our bodies and our inner paths with the outside world through the sense of "TOUCH".

 

 These workshops are designed for artists of various disciplines who would like to explore the potential of their body as a moving landscape and bring it into relation with the surrounding spaces, the natural and urban landscapes.

Molding The Void: 

Ma = space in between. The space where our bodies exist and move. Where we tell our body stories and unfold our narratives. 

 

These workshops are designed for architects, dancers, movement practitioners, artists and for people curious to explore the Japanese concept of space "MA" space using their bodies as communication language. 

Mechanisms of openness and connectivity with the material and conceptual world will be introduced, with the aim to explore our ways of understanding, explaining, and working with the given environment and the architectural spaces, the spaces we inhabit.

Vertical Movement: 

How does a non-floor movement feel like? How is it to move on a wall instead of the floor? what is it like to be able to climb in between walls, in the space between the floor and the ceiling?

 

This series of workshops are designed for movement practitioners of various practices: climbers, dancers, acrobats aerialist and more.

 

They are focusing on corporeal technique, strength, balance, and exploration of personal movement vocabulary through an architectural point of view of the space and body. We use bouldering and climbing walls and aerial apparatus hanging in the space,  for a rhythmic and coordinated use of our body, in relation to space and other bodies.
