REFLEXION
intensive dance improvisation and sound workshop
(with morning meditation, yoga and contemporary dance training)

26 December 2019 – 5 January 2020
Murcia (Spain) at Centro Párraga and Zenrai Dojo

facilitated by Ingo Reulecke, Selu Herraiz and Trinidad Martínez

For people with somatic and/or artistic experience who are interested in exploring through  movement, creativity, writing and improvisation. Max. 25 people.

My thoughts are busy with the water reflections, with the sparkling sun behind a naked shoulder. When I think about this theme I become more and more aware of small details. It is in the steel of the blue pen, in the plate under the coffee cup. I discover it in precise places. Although normally we are not aware of them, it is like if they would decorate our surroundings in a subtle and almost magical way. Now they are enhanced when I look near by.

It calls my attention the image being deformed as well as the repetition of the image. It is a game of shade and light. It also has to do with a physical fact, the reflection of light, of waves traveling through the air. Something that rebounds, it could even be Aikido, listening and answering. Communication, information being deformed. Do we receive it in a direct or in indirect manner? I discover reflection, in plastic, water, liquids, mirrors, drops and when I write. In the saliva, in mirror sun glasses, I become obsessive with sun glasses, they are like two big lamps, they are like the eyes of a fly, people’s eyes. Which places in our bodies reflect? The wet hair, the pupils, the pee, the emanated fluids. My skin reflects, my skin has shades, my skin reflects the light. A reflection in a reflection, the infinite image of a mirror in front of an other mirror. The sparkles of the sun. The light of the stars.

lodging in Murcia

We propose you these two possibilities, but you have to make the appropriated reservation as soon as possible with them directly, it is Holidays time and they have very limited space. And there are many other options in Murcia as well. Feel free to find your way.

Option 1. Lodging at the El Quirófano. This is a extremely interesting artistic space, surrounded by orange and lemon trees. It costs 16 – 18€ the night. You can contact them through Air bnb by clicking hier or ask me about it.

Option 2. Lodging at the Hostal La Casa Verde. They have group and double rooms. If you talk to them, tell them that you come from the dance group with Trinidad Martínez. The price is from 17 – 19€ euros on pro night (with breakfast 3€ more). The best way is to call them: 00-34- 968- 295031.

Why is it interesting to create a reflection?
Why do I react to the words or movements of somebody else?
At which point do I react and why? when do I stop with it?
Is it the exact precision in the moment important?
When is the moment gone?
What makes my reaction to be slower or faster?

What comes back
Variation
Deformation
Transformation
Refraction
Transparency
Light in the different materials
Shining
Water, liquid, smooth
A ball in which you always see a reflection
We see through a filter
Mirage (Trügerische Spiegelung)
Looking for reflexion
That which we only can see because of the reflection
Reflex Action
In Los Alcázares at night

Retro (lat. backwards)
Alicia in the Mirror is a good book from Carroll
But there is for sure more…
Soundwise, arpeggio and harmony are forms of mirror
Also stereo left and right
Reverberation
Acoustic Mirror
Specular reflection

Diffuse reflection
