WORKSHOPS
JUMP WITH ME INTO DARKNESS
Saïd Gharbi
27 JUN / 10am

Exploring the state of blindness, moving thought the space while adopting strategies and structures permitting to feel safe. While we move, observing what we feel and listening to space around us.

 

Encountering other people, music, rhythm, the immense space and time that lies within the state.  

 

Letting go in order to let ourselves being moved.

 

Finding confidence to dive into sensations, to trust, becoming attentive, soft, playful and fearless.  Creative and sharing with the others, being open to the present moment.

 

As a blind person, I often take more risks in spaces I don’t know.  

As a dancer, I need to have entire confidence in my partner as well as my partner in me.

I will make you experience spaces and relationships without seeing.
