All cells in our body are made up of molecules, which are themselves made up of atoms, that are

bonded together. This molecules are composing and recomposing theirselves, by breaking and

changing the way the atoms are bond together, in an eternal dance, which is becoming possible

through the space and energy in between each particle.


As human beings, we can perceive this empty space and energy inside us. Life is a constant exchange of giving and receiving. As the atoms, connections with the others are important and vital for our human life. To recognize and realise this bonding we need space and silence. In this silence we can feel this eternal dance of life.

In this workshop we like to experiment with new way of creating our personal movement, exploring

our body as matter and feeling the empty space and moments of silence between movements.

Guided explorations with concrete and abstract images will help us to find new ways and new

interaction with the space and other people. The silence between movements is the door opener of

new possibilities. Each one of us is a beautiful form of life. In nature there are so many expressions of life, each one different, each one so unique and beautiful. Let’s find our form, our unique quality and movement and bring this as a gift to the others. Let’s feel the ties that bind us.
