Our bodies, imagery and inner voices

Since the beginning of time, humans were interested in one another.  Thoughts, smells, character, personality, affection, love. Nowadays we are becoming less connected with each other and ourselves, but we are all trying to learn from each other as we explore the fluidity of our sexuality, genders, feelings and emotions.

Newton Moraes will use imagery inspired by landscapes and animals to help us unleash our body parts through repetitive movements and find different ways to create awareness of the body as story /timeline /construction in space. We will discuss spatial awareness: individual, public, collective and private space will be explored.

During the workshop we will be letting emotions flow, daring to take risks that change our movement styles as well as developing gestures from subtle to more directed, affirmative, powerful or even dramatic or violent expressions through the exploration of timeless or loopy phrases.
