"tuning in to MOVE through with movement and sound"
The human body can be seen as a 'living building' in direct contact with its natural environment, both internally and externally. The observation and the relationship with the environment (city, nature and society) is the main stimulus for self-acknowledgment and it can become a source of inspiration, reference and research. By bringing awareness to the present moment, we notice the dialogue between the inner and outer space, allowing more acceptance of the unknown, experiencing inspiration and creativity. Through the practice of visualization and body awareness, is possible to perceive and explore the different qualities of the body, discovering the infinite possibility of our physicality. Experiencing the basic principles and powers which are cooperating in nature like gravity, weight, centripetal and centrifuge force, will lead us to move with more clarity, fluidity and sensitivity. Introducing various games and different techniques of bodywork, we will explore different composition tools, inspiring each other to develop new movement material, which integrates the expressive and communicative features with our technical-acrobatic skills. By experiencing solo work and group dynamics, we will use the body to touch upon social issues relating to human nature and the planet, generating new energy and knowledge. We would also like to create a site-specific performance with the participants of the workshop. The course is suitable for actors, musicians, dancers, or people interested to increase their own perceptive and awareness abilities.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION AND ARTIST'S BIO:
SoLo 4-2 featuring a Fast Track Ritual
"Featuring a Fast Track Ritual" is a duet born by the fusion of two solo projects: "Life is not a fast track procedure" and "Secret Ritual". Georgia and Jadi met in summer 2014 during the dance Festival Akropoditi, in Syros island. Shifting between a remote landscapes of voices and memories, two strong female figures, dominate the stage. Inspired by the 'Fast Track procedure' of everyday life, and the 'secret ritual' which represents the river that you may never enter twice, the Goddess of the Snakes cries reminding us the disharmony between Humanity and Nature. She appears to us as a feminine Archetype, while a woman in her room is trapped in the cage of a speechless unconscious seizure. Living in two parallel dimensions, they manifest and identify with one another. They express the pain, the dream, the hope and the necessity to respect Nature. They discover a common language triggering imagery and emotional empathy. Moved by the need of justice, love and acknowledgment, they want to inspire evolution and metamorphosis.
Charged by a strong political message SoLo 4-2 featuring a Fast Track Ritual can be considered as a scream to the human void.

She studied dance in England and Holland, has collaborated with several dance companies in Greece and abroad, and has been teaching since 1997. Georgia and Fysalida have combined short 'activist' performances, video screenings in public spaces to touch upon social issues relating to human, nature and the planet. Collaborating with professional, amateur artists and with ordinary people through ‘community dance’, contact improvisation, dance-theatre and socio-cultural activities are characteristic of Georgia's productions. Fysalida’s motto is ‘movement inside and outside’ and ‘Geo_Move’ is the name Georgia Petrali has given to one of the technique and practices she is exploring, applying and working with. ‘Geo_move’ is inspired by the body, nature and the environment and is based on the relationship and interaction of all these elements with each other.
