Dance With Different Bodies Workshop

Pera Learning will host the workshop “Dancing with Different Bodies” during the Disability Awareness Week.  

“Dance with Different Bodies” is the first ensemble of its kind in Turkey, whose movement research methods are shared in international organizations and whose performances attract immense attention. In the scope of this project, the choreographer, dance therapist and academician Tuğçe Tuna focuses on individuals with different physical features, and the diversity and transformation of the body's mental, sentimental and biodynamic structure.

In this workshop, our goal is to analyze the relation between our creativity and body, enhance our bodily perceptions, and study body awareness, movement mechanics and sensory perception.

Celebrating its 19th year, “Dance with Different Bodies” was established by the choreographer, dance therapist and academician Tuğçe Tuna in 2000 in Istanbul and started to perform on January 8, 2001. 

Please bring to the workshop clothing such as tracksuit, tights, t-shirt and socks. You may change your clothes in the museum.
