The Overview Effect with Aleksandra
During the workshop we will look at the human body, the environment, planet Earth and the universe and ask what kind of choreography and dance occurs between them. Interested in looking at Earth from a distance, known as The Overview Effect, we will wonder on how this perspective can change the way our physical body is approached. Dec. 15 at 4pm
