Gdansk 2015 - workshops

Dance workshop

Artist: Judit Györgypál

This movement workshop, inspired by Butoh dance and theater, uses history and emotions as source material to focus on the creation of site-specific choreography. You will travel through space to create movement and dance based on the painful and powerful emotions felt while in Gdansk. In this workshop you will move, adapt, connect, share, and find a new artistic freedom, through an authentic connection with your body, yourself, and each other. You will make new discoveries changing your perspective and shifting your muscle memory. You will leave this workshop with “new eyes” recognizing the tiny details and solidarity in everything around you.
