Body IQ Festival

I am thrilled to announce that I will be presenting my research project at BODY IQ Festival in Novembre 2019.

BODY IQ Festival 2019 aims to address questions of re-embodiment in a context of global ethical and ecological crisis. Over the last decades somatic practices have become a growing field of sensorial, experiential and emancipatory learning within a broad range of educational, therapeutical and artistic contexts.

How can somatic practices contribute to a re-education of attention and human interaction with a sustainable living world?

How do we mobilize, activate and organize a culture of somatic passion and care for a dignified future for all?

BODY IQ Festival 2019 has a focus on dissemination, networking, application and somatic-activisms beyond the field into a diverse range of cultural and social environments. The three day festival between 15th and 17th of November 2019 offers workshops, talks, panel-discussions and performances with international presenters.
