Open Call: Basilea with Isabel Lewis
In these workshops Isabel Lewis will share ideas behind her practice with a focus on movement in public space. No formal training of any kind is required and all adults with a curiosity about movement and other embodied practices are encouraged to attend. Through these workshops Lewis makes available structures for public expressions of care and sociability, as well as opportunities to listen in an expanded sense--to sounds, to music, to the vibrations of urban material: urban lives and nonlife.

*Urban Flourishing Workshop
Isabel brings together techniques from contemporary dance, performance, moving meditation, and Parkour, in a hybrid new bodily praxis created with Nuno Damaso and Arvo Losinger, that the artist calls urban flourishing. Urban flourishing is imagined as a kind of practice for the body that can open up ways of engaging differently with ourselves, with one another, and with our built environment. The workshops are a chance to experience collective playfulness and full-bodied mindful engagement that can be seen as a strategies of resistance to the standardization, alienation, and hyper-individualization of contemporary urban life.

For all workshops Isabel will also collaborate with Colin Hacklander an avant-garde percussionist and composer that will share techniques for listening, as well as Nuno Damaso (http://taekwondo-bs.ch/) a local Tai Chi instructor and Arvo Losinger head coach at Parkour One (https://parkourone.com/).
