Body Islands is a workshop designed by myself and Konstantina Lambi with the aim of increasing self and body awareness while stimulating creativity and imagination. It is a place
to feel connected with ourselves and others, allowing the inner landscape of our bodies to
become more visible and meaningful.
In the first part of the workshop participants are invited to explore different aspects of
themselves through movement, guided improvisation, and playful interactions. Then, they
have the opportunity to translate this embodied exploration into a visual map of their own
body-island using body mapping techniques and art materials.
Body Islands workshops were delivered between June 2019 and March 2020 in Genova
(Italy), London (UK), and Athens (Greece).
