Dynamics of Dialogue

Being more similar than different, we-the-people share a playground; dealing with issues such as space, memory, music, need, body ability, panic, reading of our senses, reading our partners etc. Though much indicates our differences in how we perceive and describe such phenomena, we fill in for the lack of certainty with assumption in movement, through touch and in conversation; and keep adapting as we go. I suggest that to develop this communication platform further, phenomena needs to be experienced, observed and named the only way they can be – individually; to then enable dialogue.

In these five days I’d like to challenge you to dialogue with an old friend – your bodily movement, from a fresh perspective. Let’s assume the natural, given state of a body is movement. I can direct, transform, guide, even deny it; what I can’t do is avoid it. From this perspective, movement is therefore not something I need to strive for, but rather observe and guide that which is already happening. I suggest a backwards step; to observe the various processes we call “dancing” before they result in shape.

We’ll continuously work on three levels: dealing with bodily sensation, mind information and the ethics of dialogue.

The workshop is appropriate for all who perceive the world through change; and who aspire to being beginners again.
