Science of Signs Methodology workshop in Berlin!
After a great workshop at eigenARTig festival in Schwankhalle Bremen, we are happy to open another Science of Signs Methodology Workshop in Berlin: Thursday, June 14th to Saturday, June 16th, 2018 at Trauma Bar und Kino (Heidestraße 50, 10557 Berlin) from 11:00 to 16:00.
In the workshop, we will share our artistic practice which is devoted to a physical exploration that is in constant correspondence with philosophical and spiritual teachings. Individually and as a group, we will investigate the borders between knowing and not knowing, states of awareness, abstraction and intention, stillness and physical activity to expand the way we perceive our body-minds. We will allow ourselves to gradually return to our natural, organic state of sensitive openness. As a result, we learn to feel and move our bodies in a way that is consistent with our new understandings and embody those understandings in our practice through improvisation and mental/physical exercises
Science of Signs Methodology Workshop lead by Gal Naor & Matan Zamir is an inclusive space welcoming mixable artists, dancers, actors, musicians and people with and without experience in performing arts. We open the door to those who wish to deepen the connection to their body and creative mind. The workshop can be accessible to the Deaf by simultaneous Sign-Language interpretation.
