Sci Fi Anatomy

👾👽👾by Lea Kieffer 👾👽👾

This workshop focuses on creating a dialogue between the matter of the body and the sea of our thoughts and imagination. Through movement, sounds and words. Working with casual epic-ness, craftsmanship of the body and magic. A guided somatic trip where the content slides from anatomical references onto the slippery slope of science fiction with no holding back. We use bodywork and storytelling as tools to inspect our narratives of touch (what we touch, how we touch) and ways of imagining the body and physical sensations. Contradiction, otherness and diversity can cohabit, and our realities can melt, shape, reshape and melt again. If reality is a fiction, can we make our fictions a reality? -Make the space cosy (Blanket and warm clothes) and make sure you can move around a bit (2-4 m2 is enough) more is also good!-Notebook or some paper and pens (different colours and textures is great)—
