Play, Move, Dance: The story of your body. 17.00 cet (4 pm UK)
“During this creative workshop, doing and experiencing are key. In this session you will go on a personal research together with others, using your body as a guiding tool. Through playful movement assignments you will discover how your body moves and which story it brings to life. The easy-to-do creative assignments enable you to experience more energy, joy & flow in your body. This energizing session allows you to (re)connect with your body’s wisdom, playfulness & aliveness and to connect with others in your authentic way.
In this workshop, your body is the instrument to make connection with yourself and others. It’s all about your personal experience and your inner dance process. This session is about making contact with your authenticity and your own creativity, not about performing the perfect dance. Dancing, moving, playing and experimenting gives you insight into your own unique way of expression and offers you the opportunity to express your inner story.
During the workshop there will also be time for reflection, exchange of experience and dialogue.
This workshop is for everyone, from 18 years to … You don’t have to be flexible or have any dance experience, just a lot of desire to move. Dive into the experience! Come and discover your playfulness through your body: move a little, shake a little and laugh a lot.
Playing the Parts 19.00 cet (6 pm UK)
A brief toe-dip into the waters of the Fool – exploring how to express all our inner characters playfully!
“The character of the Fool can lightly step between all those different emotions we humans feel, as easily as taking a mask on & off. Robbie offers few games and exercises to explore our own inner “”masks””, and feel relieved that it’s not only us that’s got a whole cast in there…
This workshop will draw on Jungian theory about Archetypes, or different “”parts”” of the psyche, and the ancient and revived form of “”Fooling”” – playing all the different parts – as taught by Franki Anderson.
We will have a little warm up, try embodying different characters, and then look at some exercises and activities you can take away to get to know your inner cast a little better.
We may look at some of the most universal and regular members of the cast, including: the Inner Critic, the Inner Child, the Polite People Pleaser and the Wild One.”

Gibberish and Nonsense 11.00 cet
Il Gibberish è il linguaggio della filosofia del Nonsense e, se parlato anche solo per qualche minuto, ci aiuta ad attingere a un enorme potenziale nascosto. Il gibberish è una forma di meditazione dinamica che “privilegiando il corpo e tagliando fuori la nostra parte razionale” è in grado di agire sulla creatività, lo stato emotivo, l’autostima, l’assertività.
Ci insegna a gestire gli imprevisti, a giocare con gli “scherzi” della vita e a prendere il timone nelle (a volte) agitate acque dell’esistenza. Senza farsi troppe domande sul passato, sul futuro e sui perché e senza l’incubo del giudizio (proprio ed altrui) ma stando ben piantati nel presente, sapendo che nel Gibberish tutto è possibile.
E’ il linguaggio o strumento di comunicazione più antico al mondo, che accomuna tutti i bambini… è la lingua più universale che esista ma a differenza delle altre, nel Gibberish non si pensa né si giudica, non si conferisce alle parole alcuna interpretazione.
Il Gibberish ha a che fare con la cosiddetta “saggezza del corpo” laddove i modi di comunicare attraverso altri linguaggi sono correlati alla “sapienza mentale” o “intelligenza psichica”. Nel Gibberish, ed è l’unica regola, “vale tutto”. E per quanto possa suonare come un vero discorso (in altre lingue magari sconosciute all’ascoltatore), in realtà non veicola alcun significato.
Giocheremo con i bambini dentro di noi,
Useremo la voce,
Ci guarderemo negli occhi
Esprimeremo le nostre emozioni
Durante un workshop di Gibberish il super-io adulto si destruttura molto in fretta. Come? Mandando in tilt l’emisfero razionale del cervello e attivando le risorse creative innate di ognuno.
Giochi di Autenticità – relazioni in gioco 15.00
Scopriamo nuove parti di noi e mettiamoci in gioco, insieme.
“Riesci ad esprimere il te più autentico? La versione di te più congruente con quello che pensi, sei e fai? Ti capita di sentirti diverso dagli altri ?
In questa sessione proporremo alcune pratiche di gioco per esplorare questo tema. Partiremo da noi stessi entrando più in contatto gli altri, con le sfide condivise che viviamo e con parti che magari a volte non ci permettiamo di osservare ed esprimere in modo creativo. Noi proporremo i giochi, voi co-creerete i contenuti.
Ci alleneremo ad entrare in relazione, con sostenibilità e autenticità, mostrandoci per quanto desideriamo, ascoltando attivamente, aprendoci a storie ed emozioni.

Play workout 10.00 cet (9 am UK)
Jessica Penrose and Melanie Taylor
Fast-paced games for the Zoom generation.
“Non-competitive play is a great way for adults to reduce stress and boost confidence. It can also open up new horizons – when we allow ourselves to connect through play, we unlock creativity, generate ideas and see the familiar with fresh eyes. In this Play Workout, there are no personal bests, no dumb bells and definitely no lycra. Games are short and snappy with a high risk of laughter and have been tried and tested on Zoom. We’ll be standing up, sitting down, being loud, being quiet, using our bodies, using our instincts, even rediscovering talents we’d forgotten we had.
Say ‘yes’ and follow the fun!

Touching the world: Tactility in Play Design 14.00 cet (1 pm UK)
This play session is about exploring tactility and touch – at a distance.
“There is often a great deal of touch involved in playing, both in a literal and metaphorical sense. We touch the world around us and we touch each other. Play is a touching affair.
The same can be said for design – and play design specifically. When we design for play, we use our hands and bodies as much as our heads.
What happens, then, when touch is suddenly not allowed? When it could lead to someone dying? How do we play and how do we design for play under these conditions?
In this play session, we’ll experiment with the notion of tactility at a distance, exploring our local surroundings, touching everything and sharing the experience.
