What is behind Playfight Circle?
There is a saying in the theater world about the “Complete Actor”, someone that as the ability to answer any kind of situations by being very skillful in acting, chanting, dancing, fighting, acrobatics, playing music and expressing all the range of emotions etc.
Playfight Circle is a concept that brings “Play Fighters” on a journey toward the idea of “Complete Actor”. Not to be on a stage and act but to be at ease with themselves in their day to day interaction with life and others while walking toward their full potential of being.
Anu and Julie are combining their skills of contact dance, boxing, grappling, circus, acting, yoga therapy, movement therapy, tantra, energy work and mindfulness to offer a wild range of games and exercises to guide “Play Fighters” into a journey of self-exploration and expression in playfulness.
The main ingredients:
Neuro-science experts are discovering that Human are learning quicker when the conditions are more playful. They discovered, as well, that the heart has its own nervous system and that positive social interactions are supporting its neuro-plasticity for better change.
To surf on those discoveries, Anu and Ferdi created a safe and progressive space where partner’s work and playfulness are the main ingredients in the journey.
Often, “Play Fighters” refers to their inner child enjoyment at the end of the journey. It is important to remember that all animals are developing their instincts by playing “fight” with their family.
