The current complex and intertwined global crises we are experiencing urge us towards radical change in a variety of fields. One of those is how we organise housing and our living together. Our current individualistic ways seem to not serve or satisfy many of us anymore. The general interest for self-organised communities, and alternative and cooperative housing is increasing in the Netherlands, as people seek for more meaningful ways of living together.
As part of our series of events on community living, in collaboration with The Space 010, we are organising a movement workshop as a part of Rotterdam Art Week, to explore this topic through what we at CORPO cherish most - our bodies! We will use our bodies to talk about and investigate what principles, behaviors and ways of being are needed when participating in a community.
How can we cultivate autonomy in our bodies as well as our neighbourhoods? How can we learn to adapt to the ever-flowing movements of our socio-political environments? How can we foster collaboration, compassion, trust in our interactions?
Through dance and movement exercises, alongside facilitated conversations, we will dive into the challenges, as well as the benefits that community-based ways of living and organising bring. We will also have the chance to meet a well-versed Rotterdam community, as our studio is hosted by the W1555 residents association.
As it is a workshop, we ask that you come on time and plan to stay throughout! We can't wait to see you there.
