tanz.spiel.räume is a movement workshop designed for young participants from the age of 8 to 11 years old. During this workshop participants will play with establishing connections between the space around them as well as one another. The first part of the workshop is focused on warming up the body and understanding how it moves. Next, participants will playfully explore different ways in which their movement can relate to the space and create body forms inspired by the space around them, through movement games and improvisation tasks. These two phases will prepare the group to create and present a final improvisation task with the aim of expressing their own movement ideas.

The workshop will be held in German. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and have a water bottle with them. No previous dance experience is necessary, just a desire to move!

Workshop leader: Ioulia Kokkokiou
