JULY 19-24, 2018 PLAYFULNESS AND MINDFULNESS - IMPROVISING FROM THE INSIDE OUT. The workshop is based on structured improvisations in movement, sound and vocal explorations which provide a bridge to studies in performance and develop our sense of ensemble. To support the practice of improvisation, we work with meditation and awareness practices in particular drawing from exercises in the tradition of Naropa University Arts Training and the Viewpoints work with space, time, shape, relationship, image and story. Participants are at mixed levels of experience but some background in movement is helpful. Barcelona, Spain. Contact Araceli Enrech aracelienrech@yahoo.es

JULY 27-28, 2018 DIRECT PERCEPTION: DHARMA ART PRACTICES "We have to be honest, real, and very earthy; and we need to really appreciate things as they are." (Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche) The exercises and improvisations in this workshop are based on the Dharma Art teachings of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and on collaborative work with my arts faculty colleagues at Naropa University in Colorado. Dharma Art practice is a deep study in experiencing the interconnection of space and form both in terms of environment as well as in one's physical body. We explore a heightened awareness of being present and making a genuine gesture. We develop grace and dignity in our activities which enhances our relationships. In the workshop we will practice sitting and walking meditation as well as formal space awareness exercises as introduced by Trungpa Rinpoche. We'll engage in a continuum from meditation/contemplation to activity/creativity. Barcelona, Spain. Contact Araceli Enrech aracelienrech@yahoo.es

Playfulness and Mindfulness: Improvising from the Inside Out
In the morning session we will work with structured improvisations in movement and sound - explorations which provide a bridge to individual/ensemble investigation of themes and inspirations. These improvisations can also provide studies for personal performance material. To support the practice of improvisation, we include basic meditation and awareness practices, including space awareness exercises and variations of the Viewpoints work. I hope to amplify the experience of "coming from nothing" - working with our natural playful energies.


AUGUST 2-6 , 2017: SPACE TO IMPROVISE with Steve Clorfeine and Wilma Vesseur. Trogen, Switzerland. Contact Christoph Zihlmann chrzihlmann@bluewin.ch


Space in the Body - The Body in Space : Body-Mind® Centering/ Movement Lab/ Improvisation (Afternoon Session)
In mapping the body’s interior we’ll find impulses to move with an embodied sense of innate structures and natural flow. This Movement Lab is specifically inspired by our embryological envelopment and development. Cells moving in space, are creating a front and back, center and peripheries, a verticality, an up and down. We create ourselves in defining space. Movement, Fluidity, precedes Form. Structures evolve, dissolve and transform. Space holds and moves us. We play with an awareness of space within and space around. In perceiving where we are in space, relationship, composition will arise.

AUGUST 7-9, 2017: FEARLESS PROJECT- Workshop for invited participants in Trogen, Switzerland.

AUGUST 12-13, 2017: FEARLESS PROJECT- Dress Rehearsal and Performance with art installation by Marianne Iten. Krematorium Nordheim, Zurich, Switzerland.

Who are we anyway and why are we here?
