Connecting through

Play-Fight

 

Workshop

18-19 March 2022

Berlin

In Play-Fight we use rough-and-tumble games and movement situations to learn about patterns we use to deal with resistance and conflict.

The practice we guide you through is joyful yet deep: It helps you connect to your aliveness, resources and power as well to connect to others in a profound way.

Inspired by martial arts, dance and somatic practices the central point is to develop and strengthen a playful mindset and a body that uses structure instead of force to deal with the outer world.

We will explore themes of:
Body-awareness and self-care: sensing yourself and learning to prevent future injuries

Coordination and resilience: changing patterns and developing power

Contact, conflict & cooperation: partnering and group-scenarios foster embodied communication skills

Creativity and adaptivity: Learning to deal with complexity through physical play and movement improvisation

Content of the workshop:
- Dynamic Stability
- Centering and Gravity
- Non-Resistance

Prepare for two days of exploration and intense play.

There will as well be spaces to reflect on the personal, social and cultural implications that are at the core of this practice.

All genders are welcome.
