Starting from simple games based on naming body parts, Monika Kiwak will guide the participants through a series of exercises that will activate their whole bodies. How can a nose or an ear dance? Can a movement that is typical for a particular part of the body be used for naming that body part? Based on children’s natural motor and linguistic expression, the choreographer and all the workshop participants will create a surprising world of animated body parts.

In her work with children, her focus is on merging various fields of art and science, e.g. visual art, music, physics and anatomy, with movement. She is currently working on the subject of the similarities of H. P. Grice’s principles of communication in verbal and nonverbal language.
