Fighting monkey open workshop by Natalia
An open workshop serves as a basic platform for the Fighting Monkey Practice. it’s an overall introduction to the qualities and ideas that have been developed over the last 15 years of F.M. research. There are no restrictions or prerequisites, in terms of former experience and background. Groups usually consist of people from various fields and levels of skills but anyone can easily find their place to work and explore - anyone interested in human evolution. You will experience mainly movement situations - irregular training methods to provoke and increase the adaptive value of your behavioral traits and strategic planning. We will work on complex and most of the time improvised structures to improve your movement qualities and increase your creative variability. We will help you to understand the underlying principles of human motion and how stress and pressure affects our perception, behavior and actions and how creatively adaptive you are in complex situations. Foster improvisation, imagination and creativity. These are vital in problem solving, Which is vital to adaptability, longevity and sustainability. Play games. Expose yourself to difficulties. We will concentrate on strengthening and elaborating your partnering skills - in other words, your communication skills. Through irregularity, surprise and some chaos and some patterns, we will try to find our wings.
some workshops offer group improvisation or partnering. these workshops elements may or may not be possible and the teachers and choreographers will modify their workshops accordingly in line with the health and safety measures required at the time. please stay flexible. thank you!

She can cook a dinner for 17 people and she can have 3 espressos in a row. A collector of animal bones - especially golden dragons - complex fragrances, aromatic herbs, stones and rocks. She has knowledge in how to grow a plant from a single leaf, hip hop music from ‘92 to ‘10, inner and outer order, anthropology of culture. Likes to walk slowly - terribly slowly - as it reminds her that time doesn’t exist and that presence is to be somewhere. Performer, teacher, also known as the polish hammer. she Rooted herself in FM practice, and in SEAD, graduating with a double diploma in choreography and performance. Since 2006, she has been stepping on the Fighting Monkey path- she understood that this gave an axis to her teaching and life. As a pedagogue, she is motivated by an urge for movement as a consequence of being alive and by an endless and necessary will to share. Her teaching reaches many different grounds and anyone willing to try. She is currently busy with Fm, TCM*, stillness&motherhood, collaboration with Voetvolk - Lisbeth Gruwez. Natalia would not mind being a bird or an ocean, but she is the happiest when she can be herself. If she would be asked to close with a quote she would say: All I ask is that you step with me into the boundlessness, where constancy, quietude and peace, infinite emptiness reign.
