Creativity is a force of our nature, as natural as breathing. We each possess a license to create that is irrevocable. It points us towards our essential nature, which is vast, unique, and universal.

Art in Motion (AIM) is an Open Floor special focus program and a collection of workshops and on-going groups that blend our movement resources with writing, theatre, and visual art-making. Sometimes all four disciplines are incorporated to access our creative intelligence and illuminate the artist within.

 

“For most people, creativity is a serious business. They forget the telling phrase ‘the play of ideas’ and think that they need to knuckle down and work more. Often, the reverse is true. They need to play.” Julia Cameron

 

Whenever we dance, we build the muscles of creative intelligence. Just like emotional intelligence, fostering creativity offers profound skills for navigating our day-to-day relational world. It inevitably leads towards intimacy, raw aliveness, authenticity, vulnerability, presence and sudden attacks of transcendence.

Open Floor Art In Motion programs are open to all. No previous experience needed, movers, artists, seekers and creatives of all kinds are welcome.

 

Once a month, in my studio in Berlin, I’m organizing a meeting called The Empty Space for Creative Possibilities. This event is based on the donation and the purpose is to meet together and create from the present moment. If you want to get notified sign up for my Art in Motion events HERE. The Empty Space can hold only 8 people.

Jun 5 @ 2:45 pm – 4:00 pm
  Hello dancers, hello rainbow angels and ghost poets. Let’s come together for a moment to ignite our flame. Let’s start next weekend with playfulness and fun. Let’s allow our imagination to flow with ease and spaciousness. We too often hold back from the worry that we can’t paint or dance. We attempt to make excuses the first moment we even start to think about it. The point here is definitely not to try to learn to dance or paint like an expert. It’s about remembering what we actually want to do more often. It is about igniting a flame for creative flow, ease and spatial imagination. It’s about starting something that you cannot imagine is possible. This 4 week ongoing online meetings will begin on Friday the 5th of June until 26th June. It will only take 1h and 15 minutes of your precious time – from 3.45 pm – 5.00 pm. It’s possible to drop in for one class or commit to the whole 4 sessions cycle. Each time we will start with movement to loosen the body and mind, to let go of the day or the whole week, to create space for new to come. This part will take about 30-45 minutes. From there we will see what reveals itself to us and what wants to be expressed through painting, drawing or writing. At the end of the session, you will receive and take something that will remind you of your always blazing flame.   Register here   ⫸What will you need You’ll need a computer, iPad or Smartphone, a good internet connection. An account on Zoom.com Materials for drawing, painting or just a pencil and sheets of paper or your beloved notebook Some space to move. If you are in a shared space you might find a room to yourself so you can dive into your own experience unselfconsciously. Or invite your friends/family to join you. Minimize other distractions (doorbell/email / washing up) so that you can be as present in the moment. Wear comfy clothes to move in. Perhaps bring some water or a cup of tea. ⫸Cost? If you can pay the normal cost for the class, 12€ -20€ then please do. Many people are financially hard hit by work being canceled, I’d rather you came and paid whatever feels right, rather than not come at all. This is a ‘you-choose-what-you-pay’ *BONUS – if you commit to the whole 4 sessions cycle you get 1h free individual session with me.

Sep 6 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm Somatische Akademie Berlin
  “Sometimes even to live is an act of courage” – Seneca In times of growing concern and difficulties, I‘m asking myself … do we have the COURAGE to remain PRESENT?  Do we have the COURAGE to connect and respond with our authentic SELF and embrace everything that life brings us at this moment? Do we have the courage to be FULLY ALIVE?   In this one day workshop, we will try to answer those questions, we will combine the power of moving meditation with art expression, inquiry, writing, and a bit of theater. Within a safe inclusive atmosphere, where we can feel supported and welcomed, we will play, we will challenge ourselves and have lots of fun. I would love to see you in this next – one day workshop. I hope life will not stop you from coming.  Connect with me: tamara@tamararomaniuk.com or register now.   Register here   Price: On scale basis: 95-120 euro Price includes art materials, snacks, and drinks. If money is the only thing which may stop you from coming, let me know! The workshop will be led in English, with a possible partial translation into German. A minimal amount of participants: 6, maximal 12 The workshop will be led in English, with a bit of German translation possible, if necessary Have a question? | get in touch: openfloor (ad) tamararomaniuk.com   Mut, dich zu zeigen. Mut, deinen Platz einzufordern. Mut, für dich selbst, für deine Kinder einzutreten. Mut, Fehler zu machen. Mut, etwas Neues zu beginnen. Mut, voll und ganz zu leben. Was braucht es, um diese Fähigkeiten zu haben? Was braucht es, um aus deiner Komfortzone herauszutreten? Was braucht es, um eine Veränderung vorzunehmen? Haben wir den Mut, das, was in unserem Körper lebendig ist, zum Ausdruck zu bringen? Haben wir den Mut, das auszusprechen, was ausgesprochen werden muss? All das und wahrscheinlich noch mehr möchte ich mit dir in diesem Workshop erforschen. Lass uns einen genaueren Blick auf das werfen, was uns zurückhält. Lass uns die Präsenz, die Musik, die Kunst und die Aufmerksamkeit aufeinander richten. So können wir wachsen und aufblühen, bewegt und erschüttert werden. In diesem eintägigen Workshop werden wir die Kraft der Bewegungs-Meditation mit Kunst, Schreiben und Theater verbinden. In einer sicheren, integrativen Atmosphäre, in der wir uns unterstützt und willkommen fühlen, werden wir spielen, uns selbst herausfordern und viel Spaß haben. Das erfordert vielleicht ein bisschen MUT.
