Although we are land mammals, we lived part of our life in an aquatic world. We still keep part of this water inside of us. The DNA (the real us) is floating in water inside the nucleus of the cell. The nucleus is floating inside the cell and the cell is floating, together with many other cells, in the extra-cellular fluid.
We are surrounded by water from inside and out. All the information in the body is transported, from organ to organ, by the water. When we are immersed in water, our feelings come from the internal water through the external water. In that moment, every one that is around, with a little bit of sensitivity, can feel the waves that are flowing around us.
The water has this ability to give us support, like a good friend. Even with this support we can feel the freedom of it. This will help to free ourselves, letting the vibrations flow through our body without barriers.
The water allows us to move in a multi- dimensional way and open a door for ours feelings, releasing waves of authentic and pure movement.
To reach these places of freedom, our mind needs to let the body go everywhere. For the mind to release the body, its need to trust the environment and feel comfortable on it.
Knowing the water by developing a dialogue with them is our first step.
Dolphin Improvisation is a game. A game of sensibility to the messages that we send to the water and receive back from them. The game was develop by watching what happens during dolphin's interactions: how they hunt for fish, fight, make love and pat each other.
In the days of the workshop we will visit the dolphin's world that had developed a wonderful language based on sounds, body movements and touch. They will guide us during the learning process, giving us clues about soft touch and harmonic movement.
During the workshop we will learn the language to connect with the water and with another people inside them. The goal is to build sentences with movements that appears from the feeling of freedom and are specific for a group of peoples and for one specific moment. This is the beginning of the process of improvising.
From this moment the flows appears like magic spontaneously and full of intuition.
We will give ourselves to the water and receive the others in ours body and heart. It is about sensibility and listening.
For who is the workshop for?
People with experience in the water (therapeutic and non therapeutic) that wants to add softness, flow, art and dolphins style in their work.
People that are looking for their first experiences in the water
People that wants to introduce other peoples in the water
For movement lovers, amateur or professional
The workshop takes place at kibutz Lotan and at Dolphin Reef – Eilat.
Starting Tuesday at 14:00 and finishing Saturday at 13:00. Roberto Donio (see details bellow) leads the workshop.
The overnights are made in kibutz Lotan with two trips to Eilat in different days.
Roberto Donio, born in Sao Paulo – Brazil and living in Israel, has been working to create a world of integration between water, movement and touch, inspired by the way of life of the dolphins.
While earning a degree in Physical Education, Roberto started his first steps into the physical understanding of the human body. Since then, he is involved in continuous development of sensitivity to other aspects of the body, like its language and the spatial relation of the body inside other elements, such as water.
He found in the water the opportunity to explore the infinity of free movement, in a secure and embracing environment.
He first met the dolphins in 1993, working at Dolphin Reef, as a trainer. At this time, he was part of a program called "Supportive Experience with the Aid of Dolphins", learning about playfulness and happiness with children with special needs.
There, in Dolphin Reef, he was amazed by these sea mammals and their highly developed adaptation to the water - their movements, touch and behavior perfectly harmonized to their marine environment.
Since then, he is trying to bring us closer to these elements of the dolphin world; the soft touch, the harmonious movements, and the unspoken communication between them, so we can apply them to ourselves.
At present, Roberto is coordinator of the Relaxation Pools where the workshop takes place.:
May 27- 31, 2008
