Sufi whirling and Sema Ceremony with Live Music – Homage to Dr. Oruç Güvenc
During the festival, there will be english / german translation if needed.
In this class the participants will get a taste of the relationship between voice and movement, diving gently into the body and its layers, exploring different sounds and the vibration moving through the body. A mindful and sensual experience which can awaken the curiosity for the potential of human voice in motion.
The 5Rhythms® are a movement practice that is very different from any other type of dance
that we might be used to. Created by Gabrielle Roth in the late 70´s, 5Rhythms® it is a practice where there is no judgement or norm that interferes with each person’s process. Each one of the 5 rhythms relates to an emotion, a certain part of the body as a motor, a stage of life, an energy, a type of breath, a character, etc… By working with them we are indirectly healing everything related to them.
Martina’s work is very intuitive, out of the moment and is based on feeling the participants in order to hold a space where they can open up.
Rio Abierto is a unique, experimental body work that invites you to awaken the life spirits: dynamic, lively, deep and gentle.
"The open flow", flowing, constantly changing, as a metaphor for life. It is a matter of recognising established patterns, habits that influence our personality and often put our lives on the back burner. Through movement, breathing, silence - we try to open up new spaces and possibilities for action on all levels. Music is an important element. Its vibration penetrates through our movements into our innermost cells. In this way we can feel and experience ourselves better or even in a new way and be able to connect with our very own life force and joy. We work in a circle, where in a creative manner that I - YOU - WE can be experienced. It is an invitation in this world, to get to know ourselves better and to find a more fulfilling togetherness in each other.
This will be an opportunity to integrate all the inner and outer movements of the day through a guided movement meditation.
We will be able to dance any dances left to dance, bring awareness to all we have experienced and go deeper within supported by the healing sound of the kanun (a harp-like instrument from the East)
played by japanese Shingo, you will dive you into a soft conscious body and soul dance.
In this workshop Zahiro Kai will lead you on a guided bodywork journey from the feet all the way up to the head. We will share a time of giving and receiving, using not only our
hands but a variety of other body parts as well, to deeply release, stretch and reconnect with our bodies in the transition from the first into the second day of the festival.
The journey will be accompanied with live music by Saša Pavić playing the hang drum. The participants will explore and connect elements of dynamic thai bodywork, meridian touch and rolling contact point improvisation.
Dancing in physical contact.
Listening what emerges from the touch and letting our movement arise from it.
Rolling, sliding, pivoting...playing with gravity and suspension, opening relational possibilities with yourself, the partner and the space.
Ecstatic Dance was inspired by the ritual dances of antiquity. Max Fathom created it in 2008 in
Hawaii and, since then, it has spread worldwide. It is a meeting place for all different kinds of people who love to dance to express ourselves, not to impress. We come as we are. We get lost in the music, get filled with vitality, sweat and have fun. Body, mind and spirit come together while we get in touch with our true selves through the complete freedom of movement.
In memory of the sufi master Dr. Oruç Güvenc, Dhyana Vargas, accompanied by friends playing traditional sufi music, will share a space for you to learn and experience this ancient centering technique that helps the mind to relax, moving you into a soft silent meditative space.
This is a festival for everyone. No previous dance experience is required. All bodies and levels are welcome.
