Listening Through the Body in Digital Therapy Drama
Susana Pendzik and Galila Oren
14:00 (CST 19:00; EST 07:00)
Drama Therapy in general and DvT in particular are embodied practices, in which a significant aspect of listening is done through the body. Awareness through the body brings depth to therapeutic improvisation, enhancing intuition and adding a dimension of joy, pleasure and surprise.
This kind of listening is very much lacking in drama therapy online – as well as in real life, in this period of prescribed social distancing and isolation.
In this workshop we will practice listening intuitively with our bodies through the screen, as a means of enriching the experience of improvisation in DVT, drama therapy – and hopefully, in everyday life.
