back to main Stage

For 2005 ITCR was very happy to secured the participation of the award winning British Choreographer and Dancer Miriam King , who intensively worked with and prepared the ensemble throughout the 2-week workshop period.

`In the workshop sessions working both in studio situation and outdoors I
wished to explore with the ensemble particular qualities:
A quality of seeing, yet not looking. A quality of lightness yet groundedness.
Connection to/between heaven and earth. A sense of presence.
To develop more awareness in backs/spines, encouraging more
openess and receptiveness in bodies. Softening and strengthening.
To cease with thinking, allowing more feeling. Turning imaginationinto images.
To encounter spaces that embrace eternal time.
(Miriam King)
