Event Details

Every beginning has an end and every end is a new beginning.

In the last Warm-Up Session of this conference, we’ll look at the tipping point between tying and untying. Does untying mean the end of a session? Or can it be the invitation to increase the intensity of playing? How can we overwrite the narratives that make someone think of the end while they get released from the ropes?

We will share thoughts and ideas and will be playing on how to consider the process of untying as an active part of a session instead of an inevitable end.
