In the practice of Play-Fight we engage in mutual confrontation in a cooperative spirit to precisely mirror our blind spots, our suppressed shadows, our best and our worst. In this process of integrating the inevitable dichotomies, unconscious resistances surface. Taking notice of them is an act of sheer bravery, which has a profoundly transformative potential, however challenging it may be to face this exposure of the undesirable. Recycling darkness into light without ever giving up individual integrity is the spirit of Play-Fight. Recognizing our vulnerabilities and fearlessly owning them is a subtle personal power, soft but an immeasurably overwhelming form of power, just like water that resists nothing and nothing can resist it.

PLAY-FIGHT PRACTICE
      The main focus of the practice is the study of the physical, mental and creative abilities of the body and its potential to extrapolate everyday movement. As part of the process, we will observe and dive inside our own body language and movement patterns.

      • Development of creativity through improvisation tasks
      • Technical skills with a focus on safe movement.
      • Interaction with space and time
      • Florwork and dance with objects
        • Attention Games and Intuitive Intelligence
        • Falling dynamics and the relationship with gravity
        • Following the direction of the momentum
        • State of resistance and state of relaxation
        • Connections of isolation and integrity
        • A moving dialogue between space and object
      MOVEMENT RESEARCH
        Liquid Body is a holistic movement practice, philosophy in flow, that invites each of us to get in touch with our ancestral aquatic roots. In the early embryonic stages, the human body is essentially made up of fluids. We are originally liquid beings and water, the archetype of the feminine, is the maternal cradle of human creation and evolution.


        The processes of body crystallization and degeneration, associated with natural aging, are immensely accelerated by conditioning of internal struggle, and as such mental patterns are reflected in the gravitational relationship. We will address the relationship with gravity and the exploration of free-fall as starting points on our liquid journey. We will investigate the possibility of conceiving the implications of the fall beyond the physical and motor dimension. Practice will guide us through states of non-resistance awareness. We will release the dammed waters and awaken sensitivity in the perception of an aquatic flow latent in mechanical manifestations, commonly overshadowed by excess muscle toning.


        Getting in touch with this embodied oceanic legacy is an invitation to delve into deep individual and transpersonal transformation processes. Liquid-Body is a fine work that provides sophistication in expressions of movement and in the qualities of individual, interpersonal and collective connections. Finally, the practice aims at synergistic integration between this continuous flow of information and the exchange of endless forces and stimuli that bathe the trillions of cells of our being every second.
          Liquid-Body and Somatics
            Вreathing is not only the most vital physiological function, the one that animates the body, but also a portal to self-knowledge allowing deep explorations of the being in its most intimate mysteries.
