Moving into Writing ↔ Writing into Moving

My friend and multi-talented super-hero, Liz Erber, is about to run a course integrating movement and writing, using each to inspire and explore the other.  Having seen her combine dance and poetry to magnificent effect, I can heartily endorse the course for any movers, writers and in-betweeners in Berlin.

Moving into Writing Writing into Moving

Facilitated by Liz Erber

K77 Studio

5-week series: March 1st – March 29th, Mon. 6-8 pm

6-week series: April 19th – May 24th, Mon. 6-8 pm

This course is designed for all levels.

No dance or writing experience necessary, simply the desire to move and to put pen to paper.

All languages and styles of writing welcome!

In these series we will create an intimate and safe space for body/movement exploration, writing and the intersection of the two. Sessions begin with a physical and/or writing warm-up, followed by a specific body exploration that serves as a jumping off point for our writing. From our writing we return to body/movement, and thereupon continue making our way between the two forms. We will work individually, in partners and sometimes share our work in unique group scores involving reading, movement and writing. Over the course of the two series we will explore a variety of ways of moving and engaging/activating our writing voice. Course structure will remain flexible so as to fit the needs and interests of the group.

This course is about freeing the body and the pen, leaving aside expectation, accessing the unexpected.

Movement investigations informed by: anatomy, imagery, developmental patterns, contact improvisation, and more.

Structures to be explored are great for developing: self-awareness, a unique voice, writing, performance work, choreography.

Cost: 5-week series: 40 Euro / 6-week series: 48 Euro
