Dancing Conversations is a workshop-series of Tanzkongress 2022, that offers an insight into individual physical practices of dancers. Each session starts with an interview of an invited dancer, where they answer questions on what is driving their own practice; what it focuses on and what it wishes to share. This will be followed by a physical exploration of their particular practice, before finishing with a collective reflection and exchange between the teaching dancer and the participants about their shared experience.

Yansi's practice is based on somatic research of the human body, as well as biomechanics, proprioception and mental engagement during movement. This workshop proposes and articulates the movement of the body as a three-dimensional and scenic research in itself. The physical-somatic practice focuses on the relationship to, and awareness of the spine and how it relates to distal points, the space, and other bodies. It aims to increase awareness by triggering physical, energetic, mental and emotional layers as well as tuning into sensitivity. This workshop is open to everyone with dance experience and all those who are interested in body research.
