10:00 - 12:00
WiseMotion Masterclass

WiseMotion is a concept which improves embodied cognition, self-awareness and collective understanding through dance and neuroscience. It is a series of masterclasses based on guided improvisation, neuroscientific explanation of the experience, and group conversation. In a WiseMotion masterclass, experience and knowledge come together and deepen understanding by utilizing the wisdom of both approaches. On the masterclass of the MoBI conference, we explore creative movement and neuroscience under the topic “Embodied Collaboration”.
