THE BODY LAB ON FRIDAYS AT HEILEHAUS

This course on embodied anatomy is an invitation to journey into our body tissues. Everyone interested is welcome to join! As I am still obsessed with body tissues, this is where I will put my focus during the course. This could change over time according to your interests and wishes. We will start off with the cells and basic tissues and then go into the different organ systems.
Connecting anatomical and physiological facts with intuitive body knowledge and body memory, we will define tissue by tissue. Using different partner work, self exploration and examination techniques to access the body, we will dive into perception. Dropping our consciousness to the structure of the bones, muscles and fascia, nerves and skin, the truth turns out to be a matter of perspective.

 


PRACTICALITIES:

Where: Heilehaus Kreuzberg, Waldemarstraße 36, 10999 Berlin (www.heilehaus.de)

When: Fridays 15:30-17:30, starting from February 16th (NO CLASS ON FEBRUARY 23rd)

What to bring: cozy clothes, note book

How much: sliding scale 3-7 Euros per class

Language: English and/or German

BEAUTIFUL DAEMON SESSIONS at Uferstudios Berlin

nach3 kollektiv invites you to the next collective BEAUTIFUL DAEMON SESSION, happening on the 17th of January in Uferstudios Berlin.

We share our research on daemons of our daily lives. Daemons are not exactly demons. They are figures of the in between, meandering between languages. We perceive them as mediators - neither good nor bad - between our bodies and social or political structures, the material and immaterial, the individual and the communal.

We are guiding body work session framed by a critical view on current social changes. Momentarily we are looking at precarization as a sociopolitical phenomenon that concerns all of us. The body work is based on the premise of a precarious body, referring to Judith Butler. Our aim is to examine the potential of a daemon as a critical and creative tool, translating personal experience into common practice.

Limited number of participants! Please reserve: onesormore@posteo.de

Open Studio at Tanzfabrik: nach3 kollektiv and others

In May a group of former students of the dance intensive program and their collaborators are opening the studio to share their current research

nach3 kollektiv is present with a Work in progress: BEAUTIFUL DAEMON SESSIONS

Our research explores the potential of demons as a creative and critical tool. We consider the socio-cultural figure of the demon as a mediator between the material and immaterial world and apply this metaphor to our research based on body-related practices. At present, we are looking at precariousness and precarisation to frame the somatic exploration. Our interest lies in the urgency with which demons can point out social and political frictions and how these are manifested and perceived in the body. Using different manual techniques, movement, drawing and speech we are trying to imaginate the structures in which such frictions materialize, giving the 'demon' an expression. The recognition of a 'demon' can set free the creativity of the subconscious and can initiate a process of self-empowerment. Selecting topics of social relevance, we examine whether the figure of the demon is useful to translate personal experiences into common practices.

 

We consider our project as a performative research and are experimenting with different formats of transmission mirroring the creation process.
