About the workshop
Empty body is the most proper form of body for dancers as well as for performers. An empty body is the purest form of being which does not carry any character nor any characteristics. So, an Empty body can easily represent any elements in the world. It can remain stood up as a tree for years, or stay motionless as a stone for ages, it can breath as the air and wave as the wind. To avoid any fake and naive image from the method, this all needs a deep understanding from spirituality, poetry, Meditation and Sufism. The workshop Meditative dance is trying to give a basic taste of all this to its audience.
Conclusion: Through the course participants would learn basic lessons of creating choreographies inspired by poetry, nature, imagination as well as everyday life. On the way of looking for an new dance style, the method gives a try to different dance forms, bodily expressions, cyclic yoga, body/mind research styles and of course the Poetry.

We hope this workshop will lead to future collaborations as Mehdi & myself are planning to produce a performance based on this method in 2014.
