Do everyday activities have anything in common with dancing? What can turn even tooth brushing into choreography? Can words be danced? Can the body speak?
We will improvise together by referring to activities which are usually not associated with dancing. With components like space, tempo and movement levels and with the support of our senses, each of us will get the opportunity to create our own recipe for dance, our individual language of movement.
