“The body is the place/ topos … which like an unknown country, is waiting to be explored…!

The morphology, the gestures, the attitudes, the idiosyncratic movements with their particular rhythm and dynamics, the thoughts, the memories, compose a personal and unique landscape, what each one of us is.

How can we recognize this landscape of our experience that is constantly recorded in our physical memory? And still, how can we handle this material to reach a personal, authentic and liberating artistic expression?

In this workshop we will explore the qualities of our physical expression through the flow of energy, the pull of gravity, the sense of volume, the lightness of breath. The game of guided improvisation will help us to stir images, words, attitudes, sensations, movements, sounds and stories that we record and choose the way we want to communicate them.

Working in pairs and in groups we share space, energy, time. We explore the qualities of the touch, to lead and be led, to support and let go, to resist or play, we discover what it’s like to become a body, a breath, a sound, a part of the larger “landscape”.

The “The body as a topos” workshop can become a journey of self-awareness, discovery, exposure, communication, as well as a game of creation, liberation and transformation. The place/ topos that we ourselves are, keeps changing seasons….although in its essence it remains the same.”
