COMPLEX SIMPLICITY

25 - 26 April 2020

The beginning of the workshop is based on an improvisation technique called COMPLEX SIMPLICTY, developed by Sita Ostheimer, which brings the mover towards an understanding of totality in movements and perception.

Through connecting to senses and imagination, recognising limits and learning how to deal with them. The physical guidance gives the dancers an understanding of their connection between mind and body in order to be in control of their own physical instrument and therefore continue growing creatively and technically and mentally.

Further into the workshop a game of images, situations, feelings, rhythm are use to create material. The physicality is built on fast rhythmical changes of emotions and Images. The movement language is expressive, fluent, sensual and earthy. The unique animalistic movement language that arises from the human instinct is Sita Ostheimer's particular and peculiar signature in dance.
