Regulatory Bodies | In Plain Sight
13th - 20th of August 2023
by Giorgos Sioras Deligiannis
Regulatory bodies or looking at how bodies regulate and being regulated by the space they inhabit.
In Plain Sight is a workshop that invites anyone to reflect upon the human body and its nature through and beyond identities, to experience the presence of shifting bodyscapes and to explore the vastness of our blurry sensorial limits. Inspired by meditative practices of the gaze, Giorgos will introduce participants in slowness and reflection, while dealing and relating with nature and its patterns, shapes and textures.
We shall explore a canvas of great compositional possibilities where human body can be lost and found between a woody land, rocks and water. From candle gazing to creating dances of polymorphous moving flesh we shall play and question the nature of nature in order to see and be seen.
What to expect
To be part of a co-exploring community in a safe and non judgmental space.
To move freely through simple guidance.
To share thoughts, reflect and understand better the other and the self.
To practice gaze and to have the chance to be gazed similar to the way one meditates on a candle flame.
To spent time in the nature and on the studio (platform)
All Unplugged Dance workshops are open to everyone who wants to meet, share, dance and self-explore through movement and creative process. There is no need for previous experience in dance classes, although if there is one, it is welcome.
“Regulatory Bodies | In Plain Sight” workshop is part of the Main Unplugged 2o23 program and shares the week with “IN REFLECTION/RESONANCE” workshop
In the Main Unplugged we host every year new educators and artists from all over the world, through an open call process, in order to meet and highlight dance practices and methods that may exist around the world and approach dance as a practice of embodiment. We choose to emphasize on the importance of embodiment in dance education, research and choreography, in order to approach dance in a more open and inclusive way that can relate to self-determination, empowerment and expression. A dance -metaphorically and literally speaking- beyond the pursuit of a perfect form, that serves a liberating process of acceptance and joy.
