Techno dance therapy at the Victoriapark: 2020-07-24 @ Mariposa – Raum für Transformation

In by Trang


Who said that club culture was dead? Due to Corona? Certainly not me. In times of the Corona-lockdown we are faced with having no better location choice than the park, should we dance regularly as we did before. However, somehow there is no better place than the open-air nature for an effective and memorable dance session.
Please, don’t be too afraid of the possible rain since it would take a bit more than usually expected for me to cancel event dates. Provided it is not like a dangerous storm I still would play and we will dance under the rain as we got water-proof equipment. Our dance therapy sessions are intended for anyone interested in incorporating rhythmical prowess to their dance and body function. It is a ritual!
Dancing can be much more than just movements and this is the underlying essence of dance motion therapy (DMT) where we aim at reaching a level of consciousness in our dancing which would have positive effects on our physical as well as mental wellbeing, also possibly dealing with the spiritual connotations of dancing individually and together as a group. Since the past 40 years a new (though not so out-of-the-blue) dance-friendly music has emerged: electronic dance music. From the very Afro American house of Chicago or Detroit to the European post-industrial Techno pioneers of Manchester or Berlin the behavioral revolution had to be danced! One aspect of most dance-friendly electronic music is the (poly)ryhthmic command of it, its beat, the repetitive and at times deliberately psychedelic effect on our minds. In this Techno therapy we will exploit this ritual-prone kind of music which has a lot in common with the most cherished ancient ritual music from all over the world. In fact, our modern Techno/Electro/House have probably evolved from those ancient rites in which music is intended to make you dance „for yourself“, for your spirit and for your own beliefs. And, of course, for your own personal relationship with your body.
