MEDIATING THE ENCOUNTER Rhythm, Materials and Play in Dance Movement Therapy
The Relational-Expressive Dance Movement Therapy (Dmt-ER®) method is based on the therapeutic potential of interconnection. Body language allows people to connect with each other on a fundamental and deep level, the sensorimotor, from which the creative process springs as a powerful evolutionary and harmonizing factor.
This workshop will focus some fundamentals of Dmt-ER®:
a) rhythm as the main organizer of collective connection and psychophysical life,
b) materials, objects and props as mediators of relationship,
c) play as encouraging dynamic environment.
There will be practical sessions, theoretical classes, personal body work and group work.
The mornings of the three central days (30 September, 1 and 2 October) will be open to a larger group of participants and dedicated to practical and body work experiences.
The first, the last day and all the afternoons will be reserved for students attending the 3-years professional DMT training and will include theory and group work.
A supervision day as well will be reserved to the students of the professional training the 4 October.
