well-being through improvisation,
free dance & creative movement




BERLIN edition

 
 
 
Adriana's workshops were and always are an occasion for joy, relaxed play, exploration of the body and its limits, intimacy and community. Her contained practices help you breathe fully and give freedom to the imagination of the child inside you.

Relaxed 2024.jpg

A delicious menu of exercises and techniques of action and concentration through relaxation, some used for hundreds of years in oriental theater, which will help us understand that we are much more present, strong, creative, effective when we free our body and mind from unnecessary fears and tensions.

A set of higher status exercises from improvisation and oriental techniques of minimal resistance and decided action. All to get rid of bodily victim patterns and to elegantly and with all our immensity get out of power relations that reduce us to much less than we are.

We will explore what we are beyond social habits and masks, incorporating the rules of fair and harmonious relationships with ourselves and others, to reduce dissociation from our own emotions, body and valid needs, and to reduce the freeze, flight or fight situations where we remain trapped in a narrow range of emotions.

What would it be like for your life to become a work of art, a show in which to breathe and play with pleasure, rising spectacularly (how else?) from all the challenges and all the falls. I happened to think about it sometimes, art saving my life countless times since childhood, with its lessons of flying and exiting with some grace even from great human suffering.

After decades of artistic practice, passion for human cognition and deepening human behavior with some great masters of the international scene, I can offer you some simple, easy and often funny tools and trainings, which, practiced on your own after meeting me, can gradually transform your life into a work of art and a desirable show. 

To find out what suits you more, I invite you to answer yes or no to the following 3 questions:

1.

Do you find it difficult to balance the needs of relaxation and regeneration with those of effort and turn your own work into an enjoyable and exciting game? Do you feel blocked by the voice of your inner critic ("I'm not capable, I can't, it's impossible for me to succeed"), not allowing yourself to listen to your intuition and forbidding yourself to have moments of spontaneity, confidence in yourself and others, trust in satisfying, common game?

2.

Do you think bullying, shaming, ghosting situations have affected your confidence in your own abilities and dreams and your legitimate need to live in a non-hostile, non-discriminatory social environment where every person is allowed to flourish? Would you like to change your victim body patterns with one of strength, self-confidence, and relaxation so that the unfair scenarios stop?

3.

Do you often deny your own legitimate needs and feel trapped in toxic personal and professional situations and a narrow and harmful range of emotions, disassociating yourself from your emotional complexity, its legitimate no's and yeses, denying yourself and reducing yourself to much less than you are? Just to make room for others....

EMOTIONAL
2024
These workshops are the result of over 20 years of practices and explorations in the area of Eastern and Western theatrical forms, contemporary dance and improvisation, all combined with
my background in philosophy, cognitive sciences and passion for new research related to resilience through art, post-traumatic growth through some practical, simple ways, available to each of us in everyday life.




Multimedia artist, philosopher, performing arts professional & cultural manager, Adriana Chiruta lives and works in Berlin and in her main life-art project she called Carambach, an invented "country" for artists and scientists in Transylvania which will function as an ecostructure for contemporary art. A radically iconoclast theatre director, passionate by contemporary dance, and with a philosophical background focused mainly on logic, cognitive sciences and social design through architecture, her main passion is to create frames in which the spectators` involvement can be viewed as works of art. She devises circumstances that stimulate the public to perform, to jump into the game spontaneously. All her works and workshops emerge out of this drive of changing the political paradigm of art by encouraging the public to occupy, personally, socially and politically the stage, instead of just applauding others.



”Using 'art' as a device for navigating passionately in her life and also working the logical and practical conditions that allow 'freedom' to be also lived, not only conceptualized, Adriana Chiruta invites you to 'occupy the stage of your own life', personally, socially and politically.  Fusioning her background as a theatre director and philosopher, she has envisioned a series of training exercises, aimed at transforming the simplest events in the human life into a meditation upon the voluntary act of embodying 'art'. Iris Ordean & Isabelle Henrion

”Adriana invites her visitors to be subjects of art (sujets d`art), becoming part of the work proposed by her with their own breath, their own body and micro-movements. What does it mean to make art or to be an artist ? Is it just about appearing on a stage or presenting an object of art in a gallery, waiting for admiration and applause? But what if it means much more ? What if it means, for example, to transform your own life and all that surrounds you into art ? Or, as humanly as possible, to turn people around into artists? Adriana Chiruta’s positive but equally critical spirit is beyond the answer to these questions; she believes that in today’s world of multiple crises, sometimes surrounded by cruelty and heartbreaking injustice, we need, on an ever-widening scale, some social training in respect and care for our own fragility and sensitivity."
Anca Verona Mihuleț, curator & art historian
