In Embodied Oracle we propose to create a deck of cards and its game/ritual based on practices of attention, movement and choreographic composition, inspired by the imaginary of tarots and oracles. This workshop explores the therapeutic, playful, transformative and revealing potential of these experiences relating it with the dance practice. We are interested in activating a process of awareness through the body allowing a state of curiosity, sensibility and attention to yourself, the others and the world.
