Agostina D’Alessandro: Conscious Release Method, workshop

Platforma NEST is organizing a workshop ba the artist, pedagogue and choreographer Agostina D´Alessandro. For six days Agostina will guide the participants through her complex and transformative method Conscious Release.

The workshop will take place in the Old Power Station from 10th to 15th July 2023, every day from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.

The application of this technique optimizes the body perception by building awareness towards the current state and abilities of the dancer. The body becomes a borderless tool for the imagination and its dance patterns. By using the contemplation of inner space and through the release of tension, an effective means to stop habitual patterns and formal movements in the dance arises.
