Mata Sakka

dancer with sasha waltz & guests

 

shiatsu massage practice

how to treat your body for prevention from injuries. after my long career as a dancer, i am happy to culminate my skill set in anatomical studies and massage therapy into a workshop based on functional anatomy- and to offer a hands-on-treatment for movers and dancers alike. by getting curious about the deep understanding of the moving body and its mechanisms, together we will inquire into our corporeal selves. the sources of information are extremely diverse and include the use of chinese medicine, yoga asanas, qigong practices, and several massage techniques, which will help us to find the right methodology to prevent physical injury.

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!

mata originates from greece and earned her bfa in dance pedagogy and the performing arts from universities in both athens and new york. after having received her degree, mata went on to dance with numerous companies, including- but not limited to- sasha waltz & guests, where she is a member since 2005. she has had the opportunity to teach cunningham, release, and improvisation throughout europe and northern america at notable institutions such as; merce cunningham in new york, danceworks, bdi, the berliner philharmonie, dock 11, tanzfabrik, radialsystem in berlin, the duncan dance school in athens, and trinity laban in london. she is a founding member of kindertanz at radial system- a venture company of sasha waltz & guests, and is currently writing her dissertation after having finished her studies in movement therapy at the campus naturalis in berlin. one can find her teaching yoga and qigong at die wohlfühler, lotos yoga, yoga am park and qima in berlin. since furthering her studies at the european shiatsu institute for more extensive certification, she still offers treatments in shiatsu, classic/deep tissue massage, reflexology and reiki at many berlin hotspots such as eden, die wohlfühler, qima, soho house and templewerk. by envisioning the fusing together of differing corporeal techniques in order to prevent disease and promote healthy living, mata hopes to establish a strong connection between the body, the mind and the soul.
