SOMA Festival Praha 2020 - Saturday 16:00 -17:30

At the Ends of the Hands

"I don't how many times I wash my daughter's muddy pantyhose in my hands... I wonder how far my heart is from this action. Only the length of my hands. Yes, close by, she's my beloved daughter."

This workshop will be devoted to the upper girdle. We will focus on our hands and ask what they want, need, and what they can do. I am interested in the way from heart to palms, from perception to action.
