In this workshop, participants are invited to dive into a somatic journey through their evolutionary origins of movement, a focus will be made on the embryologic and first moments as a human being.
It is an invitation for discovering authentic and very primitive qualities of movement, while focus on anatomic evolution such as our basic neurocellular patterns and our primitive reflexes.
In a second part, enriched from previous embodiment and state of mind, participants will be invited to create poetry with their bodies, writing their individual stories, and work on solo instant compositions and improvisations scores, contemplative dance practice will be the tool to witness and navigate between similarities and singularities.
