In One Breath / Breath

The series of workshops and events is inspired by the world of synchronized swimming, which is inextricably linked to TJ Tesla na Lesná. Through three workshops we will focus on the exploration of body, water and breath and their interrelationships. The shared experiences will become the creative material for a performative event, an altered experience in water, on dry land, in architecture with a roof like a wave.

The last meeting has as its main theme BREATH. We want to look for and try activities that depend on the breath. For example, it could be singing, playing a breathing instrument, blowing up a balloon, mouth-to-mouth breathing and of course the figures performed by the aquabelles. We are interested in the difference between breathing as an unconscious process and breathing that fundamentally influences the action. At the same time, breath is used in various metaphors (taking a second breath, genius loci breathing on me, etc.), which we would try to process visually.

Workshop dates:
14/10, 9:30-17:00 body
22/10, 9:30-17:00 water
28/10, 9:30-17:00 breath
