About the workshop:
Mat Voorter will guide a workshop in where the participants individually and as group will be guided into improvising, playing physically and with imagination. How images can be manifested physically and how this can develop in movement and how that can transform. Plus how physicality can instantly trigger imagery and how the image can develop and transform. How interactions with others can happen and be adapted instantly through physical or image reading and instant doing. To get able to let dance happen and making dance happen, to be moved and move, to listen and communicate.

Meeting and being with pioneers like Joan Skinner, Simone Fort and Anna Halprin and all the wonderful artistic beings in the world who he has witnessed performing or shared time with, have had an impact.
