Dance Revolution Ritualistic Laboratory
A free expression dance ritual. Connecting with our body-mind-spirits through a facilitated journey exploring movement, voice, sound, beat and sweat! A laboratory to creatively connect with ourselves and each other. In this playful process all is welcome! Laughter, tears, and the full spectrum of emotions. We build together a safer space to be Vulnerable, wild, soft, childlike, animalistic, experimental and let go of anything that is holding us back. We may choose to navigate realms of play, shadows, shyness, open outgoingness, non verbal communication (Gibberish, touch, energetic, eyes, telepathically) 🙂 trying new things. The ritual is inspired by the combo of Indigenous rituals mashed up with modern rave parties and therapeutic contemporary dance methods. During the ritual there will be little interventions sometimes, Introducing different elements and invitations throughout the journey, but mostly we will be free styling and creating the space as a collective, letting the magic happen.
