SHINICHI IOVA-KOGA

Workshop:

The Organism

Thursday 30/4     10:00 - 12:00

Each step, sound, word or action we generate extends an invitation to those around us, prompting a series of responses and interactions which become the flesh and bones of a new organism. Provided that we remain aware of this relationship, it lives. To craft this life, we play with timing and space while connecting to our internal feeling states. We learn to say “yes” to the unknown, allowing the situation to develop its own logic, personality and energy. Participants are asked to commit to the moment and the myriad pathways that arise from that commitment.
