Creative self-expression and contact improvisation
Sattva Art Therapy Institute has for 20 year educated art therapists in Tromso.
In March 2017, our education will move to Auskin Creative Center in North- Trondelag. On this occasion, we will celebrate 21 years of educating art therapists at Sattva Art Therapy Institute , by offering the course Creative Flow from 3rd - 6th August 2017 at our new premises.
The course is an exploration of contact improvisation in dialogue with creative expression. This is the first in a series of new open courses, where we invite external teachers to contribute to Sattva Art Therapy Institute; Dance, sexuality, body therapy, shibari, sand play, photography and film.
Our first teacher is Sarka Prikrylova. She will teach contact improvisation together with Kian, who teaches creative flow of paint and mindfullness, and Therese, who will teach bodily perception.
In Creative Flow we will examine focal points in and in-between people. What connects us with the world, and what does various forms of contact evoke in us? Where does individuality end and where does the collective begin. The teaching will take place in a fluid process between contact improvisation, meditation, body perception and painting.
Creative self-expression is based on art therapeutic methods. Aiming to investigate issues in our own psyche, through the use of creative, media such as audio / music, crayons, paints and such. The goal is to gain access to inherent resources, joy, inspiration and creativity.
Creative Flow is a self explorative laboratory where it is safe to explore unknown aspect of our own body, consciousness and psyche.
The course will be in English and Norwegian, translation possible if necessary.
On Contact Improvisation
I invite you to explore our own body and mind when in direct, physical contact with other body using contact improvisation (CI). Contact Improvisation is an improvised dance form that is based on communication between two moving bodies that are in a physical contact and their combined relationship to the physical laws that govern their motion; gravity, momentum and inertia. CI is like a moving massage that can massage all your layers; layer of a physical nature, emotional as well as spiritual. Altogether, we will look at various relationships in movement using experiential, creative and playful methods. We will create a spontaneous dialogs that range from stillness to highly energetic exchanges.
Not to forget three important actions we all can do:
To see and to be seen
To feel and to be felt
To move and to be moved.
