Benoit Lachamber

Two weeks between the sea and the studio taking the knowledge from the sea, through swimming and interacting with the marine life and the dolphins to the studio and learning from it. Exploring how this knowledge and awareness can be integrated in our bodies and dynamics of interactions, through ways of relating to our emphatic system, consciousness and connections.

Connecting through Lachamber ‘s unique and beautiful approach to work with the body. Using kinaesthetic, somatic approaches and experimental techniques he will work on the alignment and imagination of participants, who are invited to sharpen their sensorial acuity through an awareness of the dynamics of fluids, interpretation of movements, systems and corporeal architectures. With the aim of reconnecting with the innermost sensations of the body, he sets up a relationship between inner and external architectures, inviting participants to immerse themselves in the feelings experienced by energetic bodies.

The Plan 
We will go out to sea for 2 nights / 3 days to start our journey. Then come back to land and work in the beautiful sea-side Shala studio, then on every third day we head out to sea again on one-day boat trips. By the end of the two weeks and a total of 5/6 days at sea we open the studio doors to share a step of the work with the interested public who will be invited to immerse and participate in the work and the journey we crossed together.

Working towards a long term project , a multidisciplinary interactive Perfromance that is about empathy connections and passion between land and sea.
