Contemporary Dance Workshop with Sita Ostheimer

Sita will guide the participants through an improvisations technique which Sita uses to give the dancers an understanding of the connection between mind and body. It is a game of images, situations, feelings, rhythm and in bodying those.
Her work is build on fast rhythmical changes of qualities, emotions and Images.
The movement language is expressive, fluent, sensual and grounded.
Ostheimer’s collaboration with many choreographers such as Hofesh Shechter and Itzik Galili has influenced her approach to movement, work and life. The unique animalistic movement language that arises from the human instinct is her particular and peculiar signature in dance.
