Expressing yourself appropriately, by using your whole body, is essential for good communication. We may think that words express everything we want to say, but our non-verbal actions, like our stance and gaze, can often convey a different meaning to our words, stopping us from communicating an idea or message effectively.
This eight-part Body Language Workshop will explore and improve your body language and non-verbal skills, allowing you to effectively express yourself through your body! The workshop will be led by Juliana Appel, theatre actress and director, and member of Spouse Community Aarhus, with over 16 years’ experience as a teacher of Theatre and Body Expression.
The workshop is open to both members and non-members of Spouse Community Aarhus, and will cover the following objectives:
- To awake the expressive possibilities of the body
- To use the body in an unconventional way
- To perceive the own body in the space and its relationship with the other workshop participants
- To discover a space for playing and unlocking the stresses of everyday life

“Our daily lives often limit our bodily movements. We live in cities, we share small spaces, and we must follow some rules to live in harmony. With this way of life, our body accumulates tensions that determine, and sometimes restrict, our way of expressing ourselves. Body expression exercises make us more aware of the expressive possibilities of our body, expanding our visual, tactile and motor perception.”
