The workshop with Tina Afiyan Breiova will be looking closely at each individual in the group and with the help of the collective we will be trying to identify the gaps in one’s body and thinking.Turning inside out various movement principals we will seek variability and expansion of the intellectual and physical horizons. To provoke a strategic and problem solving thinking we will collectively choose limitations and restrictions which we will be working with.
Taking the Gliding Space practice we will be bridging the information with each person’s craft. We will be finding the potential in creativity and artistry across different styles, techniques and art forms.
We will be questioning the idea of being ‘ready’ and testing everything that is proposed constantly.
Encouraging dialog and demystifying accepted theories and seeing them from different perspectives.
We will be aiming to enrich the quality of the conversation that we are having with ourselves and observe how it shapes the relationships and interactions that we cultivate as humans.
