My new online/offline workshop for everyone to practice making sense of the unknown. It offers practical navigation tools to use when you find yourself in the gap. It draws from a wide field of improvisation and conscious body practices that embrace the notion of not knowing as a gift, that helps you to be present in each moment and opens new fields of possibilities. Each day we engage in simple practices to focus body and mind from inside to outside, moving between online, offline, indoors and outdoors. We awaken our curiosity, we observe intensely, we are moved by what we sense and see. We write, draw, talk and listen to each other. We then use this freshly embodied knowledge to illuminate our individual questions and wishes of the moment. To transform them into concrete plans for action, we use structuring frameworks from Scrum/Agile and Design Thinking. These process-based methods are in our context perceived simply as another set of improvisation tools and scores. So each day we aim to take one concrete step towards transformative action directly into our everyday life.
For this workshop you need neither experience in dance improvisation nor innovation practices, but a wish to explore translation processes from inside to outside and into immediate action. Either just for yourself, or to give guidance to others within your own teaching.
“Where you are when you don’t know where you are is one of the most precious spots offered by improvisation. It is a place from which more directions are possible than anywhere else. I call this place The Gap,” Nancy Stark Smith, in Contact Quarterly 1987
