An intensive workshop for more experienced dancers, exploring the different improvisatory and compositional tools Sabine Molenaar uses in her own creative process.

How to build your own universe? What personal qualities and layers might create a total experience? How might you tell your story through movement which starts purely from an emotion, a thought or a physical sensation? Using visualisation, breath and movement to connect the mind and body, we will stimulate the imagination, creating a nourishing environment to research different states of mind and physicality. This workshop will stimulate each participant to find their own unique qualities and, through pushing their physical boundaries, transform both body and mind.

This workshop will take place at Dance Space Edinburgh on Friday 8th February – 9am to 5pm, and Saturday 9th – 1pm to 8pm.

About our workshop leader: With her company Sandman, Sabine Molenaar creates deeply personal imaginative productions ruled by the associative logic of dreams. The world she creates is intriguing and unusual but always recognizable. Sabine develops her work from a specific state of mind. The body – in which she combines supreme mental, physical and emotional concentration – is her tool and gives her characters and associations profundity and expressiveness. She connects the concrete and the etheric. The body is the point of departure and compassion: painfully virtuous and mercilessly personal.
