BACK HOME / Lukas Karvelis / CREATIVE LAB

Open level

During this workshop participants will be encouraged to explore their body abilities through improvisation. Different tasks will allow everyone to discover a self-renewing movement. A lot of attention will be paid not only to individual work, but also to contact improvisation. How to hear the breathing of another human body? The dance studio will become a playground where everyone is invited to experiment and laugh.

Lukas will lead two cycles of workshops: shorter August 16-18th and longer August 20-24th. Part of information will be repeated in two cycles, so we advise to choose one.
