Dance can be a perfect tool for exploring your interior and improve your self-awareness. In Living Energy, with the sunset setting the scene, you can exercise this “return to consciousness and to the body” in these free workshops of biodanza, capoeira and 5 rhythms to be held each day from 19:00 and 20:30.
The capoeira classes will get things going on August 15, 16 and 17 with the Grupo de Capoeira Cordão de Ouro from Barcelona, coming to the festival for the first time. Together with the Brazilian master Ricardo Ribeiro they will teach the public the basic moves of this Afro-Brazilian martial art through creative games and physical expression. The sessions, for both children and adults that are also adapted for people with limited mobility, will close with an exhibition on Monday 17.
Tuesday 18 and Thursday 20 biodanza takes up the baton, that makes use of the emotions that music provokes together with movement to deepen a person’s self-awareness. Ruth Vilar and Eduardo Brogui, from the Asociación de Biodanza de Valencia, will demonstrate the keys to this dance and group dynamics system that helps to integrate thought, feeling and action.
And finally to end the week, on the 21st and 22nd Helena Barquilla comes on scene with the 5 rhythms workshop, a path towards self-awareness based on physical movement. I these classes you won’t just relieve tensions, but you will also explore your emotional universe through different types of music, calming your mind to discover a new more spontaneous way of communicating with others.
