Following up on our live symposium in December 2021, we are very pleased to invite you to attend Volcanic Breathing - A Digital Breath Workshop with the Ben J. Riepe Company to discuss and further explore the questions posed there on the topic of perceptions. In the coming year, we will also start the new project Friends of the Independent Performing Arts Community with you. After a very fruitful initial brainstorming sessions during our symposium, we now want to come together in digital space and collect additional ideas, desires and needs together.
Intro & Brainstorming Round II: Friends of the Independent Performing Arts Community
Digital Breath Workshop Followed by a Round of Discussion
With the Ben J. Riepe Company
Breath was the focus of the first two modules of the three-part School of Experience that the Ben J. Riepe team realized for students in four different different disciplines at three institutions of higher learning in NRW from March to September 2021, which also partially conducted virtually. Breathing is the sole bodily function that can take place unconsciously as well as in a controlled manner. Breath connects us with our environment; at the same time, it is something that we have also perceived as something potentially dangerous since the beginning of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In the workshop Volcanic Breathing, breath will be explored as an energizing, conscious action.

Please note: A comfortable, warm area on the floor in required for the workshop that has sufficient space so that you can lie down comfortably, e.g. a yoga mat, a pad or a carpet as well as comfortable clothing that will keep you from getting cold. No prior knowledge or dance experience is required!
