Conversations With The Body
A one-day yoga & drama workshop with Dahlia Sabbour & Sarah El Sawi
We are naturally expressive beings with endless wells of creativity and spontaneity residing inside us, full of dynamic life-force energy, sometimes hidden but always at our disposal. So how do we tap into that?
Creative Drama is a fun, enriching exploration process whereby we can connect to the natural, spontaneous 'actors' that live inside us, in a safe, open, expressive space that we call our mini-'theatre.' During this beachside one-day workshop at the wonderful Shala in Buzzah Beach, we will journey together, starting the day by observing our body and breath through a 60-minute yoga session and continuing to use nourishing full-body movement expression to explore the rich, colorful landscape of well-known improvisational drama techniques that will allow us to release our voices, connect to our naturally creative bodies, and produce little performance installations that may offer insights into our lives; who we are and where we want to go. Through this often-empowering collective group process, we will come to recognize the surprising links that exist between art-making and life-making.
Location: The Shala is a beach-front movement studio located in Buzzah Beach, El Gouna. In collaboration with WoMen By The Sea, we offer a schedule of regular yoga classes as well as movement & creative workshops taught by both resident and visiting practitioners.
Ages: 18+ Workshop fees: LE 850
