The crystal pieces workshop consists of exercises and materials from the artistic process of Mikko Hyvönen's performance Crystal Pieces. We start with warm-up activities inspired by Kundalini yoga, do breathing and spinal exercises, and continue with dance activities performed together. We practice mental images, the use of voice, performance and trance dance. The exercises help the participant work their personal energies, the energy of other performers and the energy from the audience. The workshop is suitable for both active dance enthusiasts and professional performers and dancers.
