Ett möte arrangerat i samarbete mellan Dansalliansen, Dansenshus och Danscentrum Stockholm
An oppertunity to meet visiting internationell artist Tara Jade Samaya who are in Stockholm giving performances at Elverket, 21-22 October.
Tara´s workshop will be focused on the play between gravity and flow. Through the ideas and concepts researched in Anouk Van-Dijks’ Common Ground, this experience will encompass practises such as improvisation, counter technique, Classical Ballet, Yoga, Energy medicine and Martial Arts. We will use the backdrop of the real world to harness and finely tune our powers to observe the impermanent nature of all things. The body, a rhythmical expressive vessel, utilised to convey the laws of nature, weather dynamics, animal instincts, human conditions and limitless space.
