Coordinated by Evropi Stavropoulou
Dance not as an escape tactic, but as pure action!
Conjunction – rhythm – base – support – denaturation – transformation, authentic communication as a revolutionary practice.
In these sessions we will allow our body to remember what it is to take pleasure and enjoyment from your very existence. Movement will create inner paths aiming to awaken the power of creativity and the joy of communication.
We will invest in the transforming power of “now,” in the innocence of the moment, where our personal history acquires another dimension when it is connected with the collective myth, when it is shared within the group through a common dance.
