About the event
The 21th El Haddawi Winter School will take place from Sunday, 14rd to Friday, 19th of February 2021 at the island convent "Abtei Frauenwörth" on Lake Chiemsee in Bavaria, Germany.
FREEDOM - what does it entail nowadays? How can I live in accordance with my own beliefs? Am I free enough to be able to form them by myself? There are many questions concerning our inner and outer freedom...
On the way of liberation from all that is not yours in fact, from any concepts and external quolityes, acquired in the process of stipulation in society. We would do it without loosing it, but to know what else we have. Together we would create a space where you will be able to touch gently this pristine treasure of inner freedom, to feel the subtle aroma of your inner being – here it is the door of liberation. As a chain reaction, this experience provokes changes of meaning and rearrangement of your life.
During this weak art and spirituality will be our ways toward our inner freedom.
Together with our guest teachers, we will seek to find out how courage, determination and creativity can enrich our lives.
Techniques and methods from dance, theater and meditation will help us to explore the connection between spirituality, art and political and social responsibility.

El Haddawi is a school for Movement Concept®, dance, martial arts, and body work. It works at the interface between body work, performing arts, and spirituality. With methods based on work with the body, incorporating meditation and humour we approach mystic experience and understanding. In addition to workshops taught by Ingo Taleb Rashid and guest lecturers, the following activities are planned: an opening ceremony, various interactive lectures, and opportunities for music and dance improvisation.
We are pleased to be able to offer a unique festival concept which El Haddawi has introduced many years ago. Both the participants and the invited teachers will take part in all workshops together throughout the Winter School. This creates a very personal and inspiring atmosphere which enhances the exchange between teachers and students.
