”For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror
which we are barely able to endure, and it amazes us so,
because it serenely disdains to destroy us.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies
How to learn rigorous technical exercises while practicing presence? How to be present during the breaks and the breaths between those exercises?
RESTLESS PRESENCE is a workshop open to performers, actors, dancers and artists from other disciplines and whoever is interested in searching for a restless presence inside and outside the studio.
We will work with physical and vocal exercises/actions developed over 15 years of Maximilian Balduzzi’s practice that focus on impulse and stop, rhythm, opposition. This training allows participants to become more deeply connected to their own intuitions and impulses and better able to respond to them truthfully, fearlessly, and joyfully. Through this work, we are freed from the constraints of habit and reconnected with the self, which in turn allows us to connect with others in the moment.
