In One Breath / Body

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 first workshop will focus on BODY in the broadest sense of the word. We are interested in the physical transformation that aquabels go through, how their bodies are shaped by regular swimming since childhood and which muscles are the most important for them. We are interested in our body, for example, when we move in the water. In a general definition, the body is the main and most essential part of any instrument, while in synchronized swimming the idea is to create the illusion of one connected body. So we would like to focus on the practical issue of synchronizing the diverse, dissimilar bodies of the workshop participants.

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