Anna Nowicka: Dreamstates
The work will focus on the practice of dreaming aware, and on becoming awake to the ongoing dreaming process that is accompanying our conscious existence, allowing this continuous flow of images to in-form the body, influence its? presence and become the source of actions. We will work on participants? night dreams, opening a dialogue with them and using their structure as a kaleidoscopic map for creativity. Employing the procedure of dream opening and the tool of shifting perspectives, we will discover ways of unfolding the body, expanding it into a multiple, ever flowing entity that playfully shifts between real and imagined, between being and doing, distance and proximity, aware of the continuous flow of impulses, able to choose which one to follow and embody. The aim of the workshop is to combine intuitive ways of creating with conscious choreographic decisions, in order to empower performers to connect with their dreams as legible sources of knowledge and foundations for creativity.
All the workshops will be held at the Rivoli Municipal Theater of Porto.
