also start of the educational training "Movement-Concept®"2018 - registration form

Dance – Creativity – Spirituality

Monday, 12th February – Saturday, 17th February 2018


We are pleased to announce the 18th El Haddawi Winter School. It will take place from Monday, 12th February to Saturday, 17th February 2018 at the island convent "Abtei Frauenwörth" on Lake Chiemsee in Bavaria, Germany.

Dance needs creativity to unfold and to reach the soul. With creativity dance becomes unique and part of a vast space. In which way do dance and creativity have an impact on our daily life? Can they be related to spirituality – are they its embodiment? On the level of dance we will explore the contrast between choreography and improvisation, striving for our own artistic expression. On a deeper level we will discover the relationship between the sacred and the profane.

Together with our guest teachers we will investigate how Creative Dance can change our perception of dance. With techniques and methods from the fields of dance, theatre, and meditation we will discover new spaces of experience, mindfulness, and creativity within ourselves and the community.

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 introduced many years ago. 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.
