WS4 1m2 for nothing – improvisation workshop
To start, we’ll need a space of about one square meter. This will be our space for nothing. The workshop contemplates and celebrates the abstract. Everything and nothing. The meaning and the meaningless.
It consists of exercises and tools that can be explored in a square meter. We are going through a moment in history in which social distance is necessary. During the meetings we will re-signify our presence, the touch, being together aiming to reshape the space that surrounds us. In a playful way, the movements and gestures will be guided through the sum of layers that suggests the changing of speeds, dynamics and levels.
