What is chaos for you? Is it an element inside or outside of you? Do you resist it or give into its force? Where is the fine line between the emergence of structures, and their decay? How can we find connection points with ourselves and among us, and how do we let go of these connections?
In Greek mythology, Chaos …
The recent years have been full of chaos for many people, due to global pandemics, wars, the political situation, or the ever-growing crisis of climate change. This workshop is an experimental space where we use improvised movement and experimental sound-making to explore how a randomly gathered group of people can experience, embody and survive chaos, and potentially create a shared sense of peace and order out of it.
The workshop is open to everyone regardless of experience with dance, improvisation or digital arts!
