class description:
The Impossible Body 
Can I forget about my own body? And if, why would I like that? I’m inviting all participants to spin that question in their heads…and bodies. 
Through improvisations, thought experiments, repetition and overload I want to create a reality without physical boarders that will enable us to dive deep into the yet unknown (im)possibilities of our bodies. 
The goal is to erase all affinities and structures in order to get comfortable in the impossible! 
My professional class usually starts with a movement meditation that brings the body and mind to the right place. Followed by different tasks that trigger overload, exhaustion and frustration. Why? In order to free the body from habits and structures that keep it from unleashing its full potential. Once this step is taken, we will experiment with new structures and movement patterns, and we will experience where the impossible body will take us.
