WHAT What is Open Motion?
Open Motion is a facilitated movement practice blending multiple modalities. Open Motion blends dancing, sound jam, improv, clowning, ritual theatre, & visual art. Open Motion intends to open groups of individuals to improvised collective experiences of 'magical' intimate communion. Everyone can join-in, no dance or theatre experience necessary.
WHY Why engaging with Open Motion Dance is a great idea?
Create Magic! Surprise yourself by collectively creating an improvised spontaneous expression of meaningful moments of boundless communion!
Connect intimately with others... Surrendering to simultaneous and spontaneous collective movement through improvised music is a beautiful experience where we feel each other deeply.
Express yourself! Explore your embodied self-expression by dancing, singing, drumming, clowning and re-creating your own uniqueness in the open motion floor.
It builds community! Become part of a creative community of mindful movers, sound makers, improvisers and artists. This practice will open your relationships in new ways enriching your interpersonal connections to a new dimension.
HOW How is it done?
Groups follow a structured facilitation of a warm up set, opening circle, and a main multi-modal activity, concluding with a closing circle. Free form dancing is the main modality. Participants can participate 1-5 different modalities. Each workshop follows a different structure designed through a main intention and body of work, which evolves itself as a co-creation with the particular creative dynamics of the group.
