A dialogue between resistance and resolution – Tijen Lawton

Let yourself move and be moved through a dialogue of resistance and resolution!

Inner drive is your energy, through which you become more aware of your body and how you choose to express yourself through movement. A workshop and creative process open to everyone who is interested in moving and being moved through engagement and interaction with different bodies, energies, and thoughts.

During the workshop, we will engage in a physical dialogue of resistance and resolution. This entails the ability to accept the flow of energy, as well as a clear determination and intention to listen to yourself, others, the ground, and the space.

Through the exploration and play of both simple and intricate exercises and proposals—choreographic, improvisational, and performative—we will research touch, resonance, impact, imprint, traces, collision, and compression, eventually evolving towards a natural performative presence, through what you leave and what you gather.

Through the discovery of a dynamic movement language, we will research the embodiment of sensory awareness of our own physical possibilities. Exploring and practicing individuals’ internal sensations in relation to their physical structure and spatial energies will allow us to discover the relationship between the smallest level of activity within the body and the largest movement of the body, projecting physical and emotional flow.
