It is a work with a very powerful energy dimension. It allows working on different levels such as the physical body, the emotional body and the energetic body. We will connect to the subconscious mind safely and with the utmost kindness to allow erroneous memories to be released through this work of the body.

For the theatrical approach, Barbara Goguier relies on the Eginton method (based on the Feldenkrais method). This involves a lot of work on the body before accessing text itself. It is possible to come with a text or to let the intervener choose what she thinks will be of interest to you.

Classes can take place at the person’s home or at the MAM (Maison des Arts et de la Musique) on Thursdays.

Just contact us for more information, we can adapt to your request.

The rate is fixed at 60 € per hour including tax.

You will leave with exercises to practice at home (daily) as well as a report at the end of the session(s).

We will ask you to send us what you wish to work on in order to target the sessions as well as possible.

Courses

Intuitive theater and dancing

“The goal of these courses is to offer a space of creative freedom on both a personal and artistic level. Wouldn’t creating a work of art be giving birth to oneself somehow?

Creativity is a wonderful way to get to know ourselves, to discover our potential, our abilities but also our limits. It is a face to face with ourselves and with the emotions that run through us or sometimes haunt us.

Over one week, the course allows an immersion in the carefully chosen world of Victor Hugo’s poems: it is an invitation to travel. A journey that is both individual and collective, which is a testament to the values of the So’ham Bugün Company: to create bridges between cultures, to unify dualities, to highlight the individual and the collective.

The goal of the courses is to bring out the emotions born from the text, to let them express themselves in order to free the most rebellious of them. Through my career and my personal life, I’ve seen how society represses certain emotions and the incessant flow of productivism takes us away from an inner listening which is a necessity for our fulfilment”.
