“I learned to walk: that's when I started running. I learned to fly: since then I don't want to be pushed to change position. Now I'm light, now I fly, now I see myself underneath me, now a God dances inside me. " F. Nietzsche
During his life man walks, stands, falls, gets up, jumps, runs… dances… lives! The dancer is not just his dance, but at the same time his relationship with himself, the other and the world. The dancer is the subject that emerges, is a presence that is declared. He is not only dancing now, but he is dancing his past and future. He dances his desire, his fear, his joy, his vision. He dances his way, his life.
This seminar will introduce Dance therapy through Primitive Expression, to look for this Dancer inside us. One does not need to have previous dance experience to participate. The movements are based on the technique of primitivism, which seeks expression through simplicity.
