Emotions in Dance was a workshop held as part of the Proart Festival in Olomouc 2021. We went through different tasks to explore how emotions motivate our movement and how movement evokes certain emotions. Even more complex and challenging was deconstructing certain emotions to enhance the physicality that each emotion brings. Furthermore, all tasks were interrelated, and we experienced how movement/emotion changes from one individual to another. This exchange process enriched our way of communicating movement, and in turn, the terminology of Dance, which aims to capture the sensitive body. In addition, we explored objects that awaken our imagination and trigger new aspects of engagement with our dancing body.
