„ bouncing“!,,,

,,,will be a deeper exploration of movement, our internal world and creative capacity.

You probably already know that even the most apparent stillness holds within a world of movement. Everything is in a state of change. Your body is in flux.

You walk, turn, jump, rest, sit, twist and the millions of particles that make your body move. The extraordinary choreography of being alive.

We relate to others and expand beyond our borders. We interact in multiple ways, wave like motions of softness, resistance, love, attraction, fear.

We bounce towards the earth and are in relation to stars and planets. Whenever something goes away, something comes back.

Our liquid body is relating to the many other liquid bodies on the earth, to the oceans, rivers and lakes. We are bouncing water particles in every single moment.

We bounce towards or away from each other. In synchronicity, in rhythm and out of rhythm.

This workshop offers a space to research the many possibilities of ‘bouncing’. At the physical, relational and emotional levels we can explore and observe our movements and develop a language to communicate what is alive and how in this moment.

An essential part of the workshop is the creation of a space to support health, creativity and vitality. With this aim and to enhance our research and dance we will practice meditation, we will have a vegetarian diet.

For the last 30 years, Minako Seki has developed her own movement techniques and teaching method. The Seki Method works with the TanDen, centre of the body, and origin of our energy and movement. It is based on simple essential principles of nature and physics that support the dancing body. The Seki Method investigates the communication between the conscious and subconscious, the description of emotional states and the boundaries between reality and illusion.
