Über die Veranstaltung
Within the workshop we will weave a journey through different exercises, eventually flowing into the free play. Focusing on reawakening awareness upon stored unnecessary tensions and dysfunctional patterns of reactions, we will gradually move beyond the field of mere physicality to embrace all aspects of the being. Only when we are able to recognise how much tension we accumulate in our system, by releasing, we can transform the tension into real power.
To “stop doing” allows the body to re-function organically and efficiently, while the mind starts interfering less and less at each step we take. Through the other, with the other, we can flow, embrace the challenge, discover further about who we are not; eventually embodying a state of non-resistance, towards ourselves first.
Main Topics will be:
falling as a state of being gravity practice non-resistance quality preserving structural integrity connection, with or without the physical contact work with and through fears confrontation & collaboration play as inherent fundamental quality More info, calendar, material: play-fight.com ---------------------------------------------

Chiara Zompa started her journey of discovery through dance and movement in 2007. Floor work and release techniques were her first strong technical pillars and by following the desire to explore the potential of physical expression and communication, she has been feeding her research and training mainly within the practice of Axis Syllabus, contact improvisation, physical theatre, improvisation, taiji and capoeira angola. In 2016 her artistic path brought her to Portugal, where she took part in FAICC, an advanced formation in choreography and creation, which gave her the opportunity to expand her research as a performer and creator. Always in search of a way that integrates the multiple expressive possibilities of the body, she attended the professional course for Contemporary Circus Actor and she studies and explores voice and singing through the Lichtenberg approach. Since 2014 she finds in Formless Arts' practices – Play-Fight and Liquid Body - a huge basin where to discover and learn about how to meet through dance in a playful, careful and confrontational way, as a gateway to the never ending path of self-knowledge. She is part of the Team both as facilitator and organizer. Chiara graduated in Cultural Anthropology and she is an MLE practitioner (Energetical and Emotional release Massage).
Lena Maya Turek - Lena started her research into dance and movement at a young age, exploring various styles in her early years. In recent years, her main focus has been contemporary dance, contact improvisation, floorwork and somatic practices, such as Qi Gong or craniosacral therapy. She studied dance pedagogy in Vienna and Community Dance in London, relating to movement and dance as a tool for every-body. Her first encounter with Bruno Caverna happened in 2016 through the Becoming Animal practice and later the Play Fight practice. Since then, she has been following and studying Play Fight, using it as a way of relating to life, both on and off the dance space. This has been a vital support in understanding patterns, resistances and openings inside the body and the mind. Since 2019 she is facilitating the Play Fight Study Group in Vienna, always continuing to learn more and more about internal and external movements, both in herself and in others. She is a certified yoga teacher and biodynamic cranio-sacral practitioner.
