BIRDS – Saturday Movement & Art Workshop [November 9, 2019]
Move Your Thoughts is a safe space for creativity and improvisation. In collaboration with Yohaku Art Collective, we invite you for a journey of self-discovery through different forms of art. Inspired by birds we will look for lightness in our bodies, play with colours, allow our minds to flow and share space with others.
LIKE A BIRD
When I was little I dreamed of flying
It seemed so easy;
open my arms,
detach from the ground.
I barely dream of flying nowadays,
but I can feel the same lightness
when I dance.
The workshop’s primary focus is on movement using contemporary dance and theatre practices, but we will also experiment with music, voice, painting and writing. Through these various forms of expression, we will get in touch with ourselves and initiate an open dialog with others. Let’s have fun and experience relaxation in the creative process.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Fun: We play and laugh together. Nothing is worse than taking yourself too seriously. We like to combine focus and awareness exercises with light icebreakers.
Non-judgement: To fully express ourselves, we must get rid of judgement. There is no “right” and “wrong”. We always strive to create a safe space, in which we can truly let go and feel free.
Open mind: We focus on the process, not on the results. The exercises we go through often bring up unknown feelings, thoughts and reactions. Being open to new experiences is key to the journey of self-discovery.

About the Facilitators
Katka (Move Your Thoughts)
Danced before she could walk. Katka has a background in contemporary dance, but lately, she has also fallen in love with yoga, contact improvisation and other movement practices. She believes that movement is the most genuine form of expression and we can learn a lot about our inner world through physicality. And most importantly, feeling good in our bodies makes us happy.
Magda (Move Your Thoughts)
Being appropriate seems to be far from her mind. Magda found very early on that theatre and stage is a place where being yourself and letting your fears go meet. Having led a thespian crew from all over the world she explored the world of acting and motion to help others find what hides in their souls.
Joanna (Yohaku Art Collective)
A visual artist and an art educator with a Ph.D. degree in visual arts. Joanna has worked as an art teacher and facilitator in several countries. Currently, she lives in the Berlin area and studies Expressive Arts Therapy in Germany and Switzerland. Joanna believes that art is indigenous to humans and can inspire, connect, and transforms us on multiple levels.
