A controlled loss of control
In any physical contact with another human being it is important to master clear communication. It is crucial to read, accept and show your feelings, be aware of your and your partner’s possibilities, to respect your fears and limits.
This workshop provides a safe playground for the practice of saying NO, a space for disagreement, for rejecting, refusing, denying and avoiding. We will train the ability to take refuge, regardless of conventions or politeness.
There is however also joy in attack, and power in refusal, there is excitement in provocation and playfulness in resistance and sometimes there is pleasure in overwhelming or in being overwhelmed. Mastering of the NO is used as a precondition to play with these dynamics. It allows us to experiment with the complex psychology of aggression and denial, to discover the liberation that accompanies the acceptance of aggressive impulses as well as the empowerment provided by outright resistance and plain abandonment.
