Silent Workshop: Mariana Kavalierattos

Silent Movement Workshop with Marianna Kavallieratos, dance artist

Location: First Floor Workshop Space

This workshop is focusing on the power of silence.
A movement and its dynamic through just listening on the inner body sounds, and the exterior sounds, exploring the possibility of physical communication in silence. Discovering and developing all of our senses, except speech. How do we watch? How do we listen? How do we touch? Without talking.
And in the end, is there total silence?
The workshop is addressed to all people interested in movement: all ages and disciplines.
