The workshop was given by our guest speaker Sebastian Perez, a guitarist and music teacher from Spain, who encouraged us to explore the world of rhythm and the use of the body to express it. We started by feeling our heartbeat and our breathing, and gradually we created an orchestra in which our bodies were the only instruments. People enjoyed creating sequences of movement of increasing complexity and the quality of playfulness this entailed. The comments of the participants focused on the importance of coordination, listening to others and allowing the body to flow rather than thinking too much. It was clearly an active evening with practical exercises and great fun.
