We are pleased to announce the coming El Haddawi Winter School. It will take place from Monday, January 6th to Saturday, 11th, 2014, at the island convent "Abtei Frauenwörth" on the Chiemsee in Bavaria, Germany.

What makes a dance or theatre performance unforgettable? How does a ritual reach its participants and spectators? Is there a special energy which makes an enactment or staging unique?

Together with our guest lecturers and participants we will explore those questions as well as the connection between dance, theatre and spirituality. We fathom what a staging is, where in our life it happens and what breathes life into it:

In many cultures a special word for energy exists: Ki (Japanese), Barraka (Arabic, Middle East), Axé (Afro-Brazilian) and many others. This energy dwells in each one of us. How can we take advantage of it, especially in an artistic process?

El Haddawi is a school for Movement Concept®, dance, martial arts, and body work. It works at the interface between body work, performing arts, and spirituality. With methods based on work with the body, incorporating meditation and humour we approach mystic experience and understanding. In addition to workshops taught by Ingo Taleb Rashid and guest lecturers, the following activities are planned: an opening ceremony, various interactive lectures, and opportunities for music and dance improvisation.

We are pleased to be able to offer a unique festival concept which El Haddawi has instituted for many years. Both the participants and the invited teachers will take part in all workshops together throughout the Winter School. This creates a very personal and inspiring atmosphere which enhances the exchange between teachers and students.
