5/6 Dec Sex and Space: A Workshop on Dance, Desire, and Performing the Erotic Body by David Bloom

A dance consists of Bodies in Time and Space. Traditional dance training and artistic research often set limits as to how much sexuality is allowed into a “serious artistic process”. BDSM and tantric practices often focus on the body, its emotions and sensations, and pay less attention to structures of time and especially space. However, a group ritual or play party has all the makings of a performance, one where the roles of performer and audience member are constantly shifting.In this workshop, David brings together his professional background as a dancer/choreographer/teacher with his experience of practicing conscious sexuality to bridge the gap between artistic and personal process. http://davidbloom.info/

6 Dec ► Emily’s Giant & Frère Dezembertour livingroom concert @ Helmut

 

Artist, curator and writer: maeshelle west-davies gleans her varied life experiences to expose a personal perspective through a multitude of mediums.
