13th International Rhythmic workshop, August 2014, Festspielhaus Hellerau

The main topic this year is: What affects people

From the organizers:

What affects us throughout our lives? How does music flow in these movements, which impulses do we receive and how internally and externally moved does our body answer? How are we being moved and what can a vocally moved body tell us? The International Rhythmikwerkstatt will approach this phenomenon throughout workshops with rhythm, music and motion as well as lectures, discussion forums and presentations.

You can register via the online form. More information in the document below.
