|| About the Workshop
The main focus of this workshop is to obtain and analyse new experiences with ones own body - not just in a physical manner, but in an emotional, psychological, tactile, verbal manner as well.
Anton's overall arching idea is to give each person instruments to create their own unique experience, a unique dance, using their own body parts.
Various practices and methods in synthesis in this workshop - from martial art, principles of acrobatics, partner interactions, the use of voice and diverse coordination exercises. He combines various methods, approaches and techniques to improve cognitive flexibility, supporting all activities with a positive and inspirational atmosphere during the class. This allows participants to adopt their own experience and reveal hidden resources available in each of us.
