WELCOME HOME - A Body Movement Practice (Sofia Sarmento)
Time & Location
About the Event
This is an invitation to take time and space to connect with our own senses, feelings, needs and pleasure through movement. Listening to the materiality of our body, we ground ourselves in the present moment, witnessing existence.
Dance - as being an action of actively inhabiting your own body - is an incredible tool to work on the relationship with ourselves - listening, witnessing and taking care.
The fluidity of our emotions and our thoughts it's not something totally separated from the fluidity of our movement.Between finding and losing, grabbing and leaving, balance and unbalance. To dance to exclude the myth of stagnation. To dance to tune the body tool into a sensitive place, allowing it to be moved. Let the world act on you. The most natural thing will be the presence of movement - You Just don't move if you resist, if you block the resonance of the other on you. Everything is in constant motion, inside and outside you - your internal organs, the planets... and you in constant relation to the whole, the whole moves in a cosmos of relations and you are part of it. Dancing to witness the movement of the Whole and witness our movement in relation to it. To be the macro and micro. To listen and to speak at the same time. Understand our space of decision and accept what is not. It's to influence and to be influenced in the same space, at the same statement.
This practice includes self-touch/massage, breathing and movement improvisation.
Bring comfortable clothes , paper and color pencils.
