Contemporary Workshop No body's Mind with Dakota Comín

Workshop | 16.03.2019 , 15:00 - 18:00

Are we allowing our body to be part of ourselves? Where are we starting? Where are we finishing? These are the main questions that I am following in my personal research. As it is so, I propose exercices through improvisation and movement structures, where we can increase our sensitivity in order to increase the awarness and strength of our entire self. Our nervous system allow us to connect body and mind, and I use this in my research as the key to go beyond my own limits.

Understanding the body in its entire anatomical, and energetic way I want to give the space to open new questions, and go beyond the comfort zone. In my research, thoughts and sensitivity are as important as physicality. Is the way we use our tools, that make us different human beigns.
