Attention Practices: Nine Scores for Space, Body and Group Experience

from 7 Dec

A bodily experience and sensory reflection on the GES2 space and architecture.

The tour, created in collaboration with the dancer and choreographer Dina Hussein and the choreographer and psychologist Anna Garafeeva, offers participants to experience performative interaction with the GES–2 House of Culture with the help of bodily and movement practices. Based on the perception of space balancing between bodily experience and imagination, as well as on contact with their own bodies and that of the group, the participants will gain a sensual experience of the GES–2 architecture and create their own unique image of the place, based on their personal and collective experience.

Dance training is not required for participation. We recommend wearing comfortable clothes that don’t restrict movement, and flat-soled shoes.

Duration of one tour: 90 минут
