In this workshop, held by dancer and visual artist Emma Waltraud Howes, participants will explore matters of care between human and non-human. The exercises will give the opportunity to experience organic and inorganic physical matter. How can we communicate with objects through touch and the deliberate direction of our concentration? How can we find a new relationship to nature and matter by practicing touch with objects?Exercises developed by Howes may include: improvisation, Gi Gong meditation, Ba Gua, as well as voice and movement techniques.
The workshop is a continuation of Emma Waltraud Howes’s previous workshop Barely even Touching in the context of the show Tender Buttons and of an ongoing exploration of touch in the program of Künstlerhaus Bremen. This workshop takes place in the context of Nona Inescu: Corporealle.
