AFROFUSION & BODY WORK

Workshop with Kepha Oiro and Benedetta Reuter

Catania, Sicily | 25 - 26 - 27 July 2012  | 6.00 p.m. - 9.00 p.m.

The workshop will center on rythms based on east african percussions, body percussions and voice sounds. We will explore sequences from different tribes of Kenya and a reflection from East African neighbours, as well as turn participants normal habits into rythms with percussion music and finally dance and dance till the body drops.

At the same time we will tune our self-perception with the help of the Alexander Technique.

Through conscious experiencing of the anatomy we will explore the body mechanics in order to enjoy more freedom in dance. A refined sensitivity for our bodies in relationship to sound and space will allow us to develop a quality of „gentle strenght“ and „powerful softness“ in the way we move.
