Mo 13 March 10:00 – 17:00  Workshop

The Social Body and Societal Field Shifts

A three-day intensive workshop with Arawana Hayashi (in English)
at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein in the exhibition Who Pays? (Monday, 13 March) and Bildungshaus St. Arbogast (Tuesday and Wednesday, 14 and 15 March)
In the workshop we explore three themes in a transformational journey around the topic of taking and sharing:

1: Awareness: Turning towards the problem
Awareness is intimately in touch with the situation that we currently in. We have the courage to lean toward those “stuck” places, rather than wishing they would go away. Seeing and sensing the present moment without judgment is the starting point of the journey.

2. Feeling personal and collective fear
Developing the capacity to recognize and experience fear in all its personal and collective dimensions is in itself fearlessness.

3. Creativity arising from being present with what is
Each moment is bound by personal, cultural and historic “stories” and each moment is completely free and fresh. We can develop some allegiance and commitment to not knowing answers and to trusting ourselves and others to co-create a good society.

These themes will be explored using embodiment and “Social Presencing Theatre” practices. We will frame questions or themes, do movement practices either individually or in groups, and then reflect together on our experiences. Engaging the body in this process of learning and reflecting brings art into everyday life in a meaningful yet playful way – ultimately celebrating the continuous taking and sharing that is life.

The program will be conducted in English.

Familiarity with “The Art of Making a True Move” and/or “Social Presencing Theatre” is welcomed (Advanced level).

Pre-registration is necessary because of the limited number of participants. Tuition for the workshop is € 360. Meals and accommodation are not included. Arbogast has reserved sleeping rooms for participants.
