Dance Conversations with Your Physicality

This workshop conducted by Eeva Muilu focuses on interaction between body, mind and language. The aim of the sessions is to stop and contemplate our own physical presence through motion and writing. We perform different exercises focusing on presence, perception and listening to the body, and write about the impressions they evoke. How does our own way of dancing speak to us? How does dance feed back to the movements of the mind? How do the movements of the mind feed back into the dance? The activities enable the participants to engage in dialogue with their bodies and their own way of dancing – just as they are in the present moment.

The course was arranged for the first time in autumn 2016, and is open for continuing students and beginners alike.

Her performances have been seen vastly in Finland and abroad. Muilu worked as the Zodiak house choreographer in the years 2007-2009. She was awarded with the Prix d’Jardin Europe in 2012 together with Milja Sarkola and the annual Critics' Spurs award of the Finnish Critics' Association in 2008.
