The workshop led by Nissa Nishikawa and Michele Occelli will combine movement, hypnosis, dance and choreography.
Michele will guide the participants utilising different forms of hypnosis, both body centred and image based. Michele will guides them into a deeper state of focus, to find movements and sensations which are joyful and spontaneous. Then, we will work with a guided image based meditation to help the participants connect with their imagination.
Nissa Nishikawa will guide the participants through specific movement based exercises to find expression through dance. These processes will build up to a group choreography in which the individuals will bring their own gestures and ideas.
With the group we will select themes to build the choreography taking inspiration from the natural landscape of the area (ocean, sand, animals) and from the local culture as it manifests in materials, colours, architecture and so on.
The aim of the workshop is to allow individuals to enjoy their moving bodies, their relationship to music and dance and their own inner creativity.
