Young Girls Wanna Dance Their Spirit
6th - 13th of August
by Lilach Pnina Livne
..and in the midst of all this and all the time we will explore the spirit of the “Young Girl” within us! 🙂
Livne creates a reflective space in this course, where reflection becomes an integral part of the dance itself. Reflection becomes a material we could all see, feel and experience.
The workshop proposes a new logic of creating dance – using Livne’s ‘Spirit Dance’ method – to let the intuition, chance, real inner process, complex humanity, chaotic sexuality, aesthetic confrontations, independent thoughts, trippy imaginative visions – to exist while someone else is watching you!
Can we ever truly dance freely when someone else is watching?
Can a “performative space”, where humans (performers) are meeting other humans (audiences), create a different logic for art? One that relies on full subjectivity as a tool for expression, rather than predefined images and frames?
The main goal of this workshop is awareness. To constantly be aware of who you are, as a “performer”, in every moment, and to sometimes, even in the middle of it all – to self
reflect, re-construct, re-create, re-choose.
We will explore the spirit thatwas lost in the process of performing dance, and we will explore the creation of new relations between all the elements that make up the medium of dance and performance and how situations and moods such as friendship & compassion can be an integral part of experiencing dancing with other people in the same space – as a performing state in a dance performance and as an audience witnessing this kind of being.
We will explore “where I am” in mind and body when I dance and challenge this question by different practices of “the body is here and the mind is there”.
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.
“Young Girls Wanna Dance Their Spirit” workshop is part of the Main Unplugged 2023 program, and shares the week with “IMPRINT#LOVE: A Writer’s 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.
