Dancing in the mountains
The Flow of Five Elements

24. 7. – 3.8. 2019, Mlynica, High Tatras (SK)

19th year of popular summer dance school Dancing in the Mountains with Zuna and Milan is taking place in beautifull nature of High Tatras, Slovakia. We are going to work on interfacing dance with the principles od Chinese medicine and Qigong – 5 elements, by means of dance technique, floor work, improvisation, contact improvisation, partnering and morning Qigong. Workshop is designed for experienced dancers, actors, movers who want to deepen their knowledge about the body and enrich their experience in motion, dance techniques and improvisation.

The workshop/research The Flow of 5 Elements is focused on working with yin-yang transformations and then with the flow of five energy transformations (5 elements) around us, but mainly in the movement of our own body. During practical lessons (including vigilant physical improvisations, movement connections and motion research), as well as theoretical lectures, we offer students a preview of the concept of the five elements and the flow of energy between them. The student will mentaly but mainly in his own body feel the transformation, and start to use his potential in the movement.

Contents of the workshop:
– activating Qi in one´s body and getting it consciously directed to independent body parts
– getting acquainted with the principles of 5 phrases transformation (5 elements) teoreticly as well as practicly by means of Qigong and movement
– discovering new movement possibilities by using quality of particular element independently and consequently by by using the tranformation between elements
– utilization of this knowledge in searching for new movement vocabulary
– conscious work with the essential physiological and energetic centers – dantians, and 19 physical centres
