Druna – tableland is a space in the center of Prague that is intended for the development of movement, voice and other artistic skills associated with the body.
It is the space for those who want to discover and develop their talents, to transform themselves and their perception. You can get a lot of physical skills here, at the same time you learn courage, openness, honesty, ability to see beauty and to act. You awaken your imagination, a mind that can turn the ordinary things into magnificent and impressive ones. The art enters your life anytime you allow it and turn it into a vertigo and poetry.

The longing for synergy of two or more bodies is what constantly inspires our movement in contact improvisation. Do you know that state of synergy with partner, when our body reactions are perfectly precise, but still relaxed without any interference of mind? Every moment can turn into surprise and the mutual synchronization overflows our bodies with hormonal euphoria. On this workshop, we will train the communication skills and sensibility – the preconditions for maximal synergy with partners.
3D - Space of Senses
Kees Lemmens (Netherlands)
25th - 26th June 2016
Contact Improvisation, Kinesthesis and Composition improvisational dance workshop. In Contact Improvisation physical contact forms the possibilities for dancing. Receiving support from our partners can greatly enlarge the 3-dimensionality of the dance. Through exercises together and in solo we can bring the particular physical awareness which all this gives us, also to our surroundings and our compositional relation to each other in the space: meeting the world of the body, as we meet one another in a dance.
Opening your Voice
2nd - 6th July 2016
The voice is one of the most important instruments for human expression. The singing voice is spontaneous, not logical, primal, and is a very direct vehicle to express our inner reality. Voice is a journey through our human potential, by connecting and expressing the wide and rich range of sounds we have within. This exploration goes from the lowest sound of physical strenght of first chakra, to the vitality and playfulness in the belly, to the power and presence of solar plexus, to the gentle sounds of love in the heart, to the creative space of the throat, to the high frequency of the 6th chakra, up to the highest and silent vibration of the seventh chakra. Discovering and exploring the sounds coming from the different energy centers in the body we reconnect and express our physical, emotional and mental states, bringing clarity, joy and silence to our being.

The Spiritual Aspect of Healing Process
Mike Boxhall (Great Britain)
19th - 22nd of January 2017
A posgraduate course primarily intended for professional therapists (craniosacral therapists, ostheopaths, physiotherapists, psychotherapists) as a praxis that opens a gate to different dimensions of treatment. The teaching continues where the concept of therapy and the knowledge of reached its limits. We will employ the way of work on a table inherent to craniosacral biodynamic therapy enriched with other levels of perception and the feedback. The intention of this course is to research on the spiritual aspects of therapy that are natural part of our embodied being. More than a lesson, it is thus a form of a collective praxis. A praxis, that leads to expanded consciousness and restores the connection with one’s essential qualities.
