Being in Space - Fabián Santarciel de la Quintana

The body is the central, starting element in the art discipline Mime. In this workshop, Fabián works with the Mime concept ‘Zero’: the body in this space, here and now. Starting from the basic elements of movement, space and image, you will together create a playground for individual and collective physical conscience of bodies, space use and space composition. In a sensorial and playful way, you investigate what your bodies always already do without really knowing it.
