A la Carte:
Courses, workshops and performances for special groups

GROUP: You can order these for your own group. We can find together a suitable workshop for your needs. The “easiest” courses/workshops are in the beginning and courses with bigger challenge are later. The basic price is 40 euros per hour for the whole group. There can be 6-24 participants in the group. It is useful to have at least two hours in one session so there's enough time to warm up.

SPACE: The space can be your own or we can seek together some nice space. In any case it should be clean and peaceful and the floor should be warm. Wooden floor would be optimal.

LANGUAGE: My choice of language is English when Finnish is not possible. Your working language could also be your own mother tongue if you have a partner speaking it.

1.      Cat Paws

  • includes silent and meditative exercises of body work and relaxing, image theatre and dance. You can use a diary if you wish. The main goal is to get rest by lying on the floor, gently mobilize the body and find some new energy by sharing some experiences. 

2.      Rabbit Ears

  • includes working with body and mind. The exercises are connected with moving and relaxing, music, imagination, one's life, image theatre and visual arts. You’ll make a lot of reflection in pairs or alone in your secret diary. Your goals are to understand yourself better and be more conscious in your choices and relationships with other people.

3.      Listening Dance

  • includes working with body and mind. The exercises are connected with movements, dance, music, relaxing and stretching. You make a lot of reflective talk in pairs or alone in your secret diary. The goal is to release your body and expression and be more conscious of your body and mind.
