What Hides in Water – Move Your Thoughts Saturday Intensive [July 6th, 2019]
Move Your Thoughts is a safe space for creativity and improvisation. In collaboration with Yohaku Art Collective, we invite you to explore your comfort zone as well as uncharted waters through different forms of art.
Join us on a journey of self-discovery. Connect to your body, enjoy the moves and allow your mind to flow. Let’s explore where your body and thoughts begin and end. Meet others in this space and welcome them with kindness.
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 explore the theme of water.
Because we are water
Water is in us
Water is around us
We move with ease
And discover the world
Of alternative beings
What to expect?
Fun: We will play together and laugh. Nothing is worse than taking yourself too seriously. We combine focus and awareness exercises with light icebreakers.
Non-judgement: To fully express oneself, one must get rid off the judgement. There is no “right” and “wrong”. We always strive to create a safe space where one can truly let go and feel free.
Open mind: We focus on the process, not on the results. The exercises we will go through are often bringing up unknown feelings, thoughts and reactions. Being open to new experiences is key to the journey.

About the Facilitators
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.
Katka (Move Your Thoughts)
Danced before she could walk. Katka has a background in contemporary dance, but lately, she also fell in love with yoga and other movement practices. She believes that we have to feel good in our bodies in order to be happy and movement is the most genuine form of expression.
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.
