This workshop conducted by Kati Raatikainen approaches motion through the various systems of the human body. We explore how different structures of the body, such as bones, muscles, connective tissues, thoughts, emotions and body parts (fingers, lungs...), move us. We explore and make observations of our dancing human bodies – and of our bodies as part of a physical and conceptual environment. We focus on our fellow dancers and the present moment, but also investigate our dancing human bodies as part of an ecosystem.

Improvised, choreographic motion exercises are used to build awareness and create physical freedom in relation to our own bodies and how they are attached to the world. The classes focus on exploration of the internal experience and tune in to the shared space and the situation, but also spend time enjoying the private yet simultaneously universal uniqueness of simply existing.
