Introduction to Contemporary Dance and Composition with Sachi Cote (USA) of Maine Body Boutique with focus on personal expression through movement. Beginning with an awakening yoga warm-up, the workshop will explore range of motion while exercising the long and short-term memory, giving a pleasurable outlet for stress and emotion. To improve comprehension of movement, we become more aware of the body’s core and energy source using flexibility, balance and agility. Students will be encouraged to create while utilizing various methods of composition. Over the two-hour workshop, the group will create a piece of choreography collectively.
Termine: Do, 19.7.: 18.00-20.00/ weitere Termine folgen
Preis: freie Spende/ 25% gehen an ein Tanzprojekt für Flüchtlingskinder

About Sachi‘s Project:
Movement Therapy for Refuge Children is an ongoig project founded by Sachi Cote in 2015 as a way to bring US war veterans relief. Movement stimulates us physically, mentally, socially, cognitively as well as emotionally and is one of the easiest ways to release endorphins, our brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, helping to alleviate anxiety, a common symptom of PTSD. Every movement is connected to an emotion or memory and it’s healthy for participants to express frustrations, especially in such a peaceful, non-violent way, something they may not have the chance to do otherwise. Touch is another component in Movement Therapy, which creates a release of oxytocin, creating intimacy, trust, and strengthening relationships. Serotonin is also on the list of happy hormones released in this type of work, flowing when we feel significant or important. In Movement Therapy, there are incredible moments of happiness when a memory is sparked or an emotion expressed without verbal communication, moments when a collective smile completely changes the energy of the room.
