The choreographic touch
16:00 - 17:30
This dance workshop explores simple choreographic practices as a way for interaction and creativity. Body and mind connection is sharpened through creative problem solving with others. Through different touch and partner activities, you sample what it is like to be a choreographer—including failing, mistakes and surprises.
Fun for beginners and professionals, the aim is to find intention and meaning with your movements and have fun in the process.
