About the workshop

What can you create out of ten balls, a stick and a rug? Twelve objects become the means for the creation of movement patterns and games. Parents and children of all ages utilise their creativity and imagination, exploring their common ground as well as their differences, by alternating roles and creating choreographies. Τhe workshop proposes movement as a means of communication, understanding and co-existence, based on learning through experience. Parents and children are invited to participate in a workshop based on movement and choreographic games that cultivate confidence, spatial awareness, movement capabilities, collaboration and trust. The workshop is open to all ages and to anyone who wishes to dance, regardless of their previous experience in movement or dance. Parents and children are invited to move, explore and experiment in a judgment-free, creative and therapeutic environment.
