Making sense of tension, creatively.
Bring a professional or personal curiosity and listen, tune in to your senses, feelings, and physical expression.
During this workshop we will pay mindful attention to our internal experiences of tension and release, and of the journey between the two.
During this workshop, the body, dance, movement and pauses will play a key role in the creative exploration, as well as the use of space and interactions with our environment. There will be opportunities to be immersed in the inquiry, and opportunities to observe.
The intention is for the workshop to culminate in a short performative sharing within the group.

When I choose to move; when I stop moving, is this because of something that is happening outside of me or because of something happening within me?
For a day we will work and play with this question in order to recognise patterns and preferences. More aware, we will then compose together, weaving the familiar with the new and thus expand our creative expression.
This workshop will set you in motion and will offer opportunities to express yourself from your intuitive self. Deep down, we know what to do, when to do it, when to step into action, when to stop. So this is what we will do: we will play with action and non action, with stillness and movement. We will investigate our choices, from a mindful and embodied place; we will move and observe, see and be seen, talk and listen, feel and sense, so as to deepen our connectedness to the avenues that inform our knowing.

Céline’s workshop was the perfect creative exploration around the theme of ‘tension’ allowing plenty of room to interpret the theme as you wish, but with enough structure to feel guided and totally supported. Beyond her obvious knowledge and affinity for this work, Céline’s strength is that she holds such a sensitive, encouraging space for you to explore ideas in movement and find new expression. I am fairly near the beginning of my movement journey in many regards, and have had uncomfortable experiences in the past, but I felt completely at ease with Céline and the atmosphere and energy she created in this workshop. I left the workshop feeling both calm and energised: that special sweet-spot reserved for when you have stepped a little outside your comfort zone and discovered new insight as a result.
