Freedom—Rhythm—Time: TaKeTiNa meets ZeroOne  

28th October to 1st of November with 

Tania Bosak, Adam Barley with Manu Lurquin and Baptiste Vaes

Two complementary practices, one anchored in embodied structured rhythms, and the other in the spontaneity of movement improvisation, share a common foundation in the profound art of presence. Combined, they serve as a potent catalyst, inviting participants to delve deep into the intricacies of their learning process, unravel the impediments to personal and creative evolution, and open a pathway to heightened states of inspiration and creativity.TaKeTiNa: an active rhythm meditation, where the body becomes the instrument, and guided rhythm journeys invite states of timelessness and deep rhythmic flow, creating an exhilarating inner silence as well as a wellspring of musical creativity.ZeroOne: a movement practice that weaves together the wild fullness and love of life through the body with the quiet openness and freedom of awareness itself, bringing up all that is not fully alive or free in the process and integrating that back into the whole experience of self as a dance.

Manu Lurquin (Belgium) assistant drummer/percussionist 

For 35 years, Manu has been studying and playing drums, percussion, and rhythm. Alongside his jazz drumming studies (with André Charlier and Bruno Castellucci), he had the opportunity to study African rhythms (with Mamady Keïta, Adama Dramé, Doudou N’diaye Rose), Afro-Cuban, Indian, Brazilian rhythms, and more. Over the past 15 years, he has been observing the impact of dance, body awareness, and free movement on his rhythmic practice, through various workshops in Afro-Cuban dance, Feldenkrais, Skinner Releasing Technique (with Lily KIARA), and with various teachers at the TIC-TAC Art Center. All this knowledge, combined with the TaKeTiNa practice and his participation in the Bachelor in Rhythm and Rhythmics from the Conservatory of Brussels, make him a dedicated educator in teaching rhythm in music academies and during workshops in his name, with Tania Bosak, and with the Sysmo collective. Manu is also a member of the percussion group SYSMO.

Baptiste Vaes – assistant musician & TaKeTiNa co-leader 

Musician, pedagogue of rhythm and polyphony, Baptiste Vaes has been directing choirs for twenty years. He is dedicated to the transmission of the repertoire of traditional songs and the practice of vocal improvisation. Aware of the fundamental role of rhythm in music and curious to approach its aspects related to personal development, Baptiste trained in the rhythmic process TaKeTiNa with Reinhard Flatischler and guides this practice for almost ten years as a certified teacher. The important thing for him is to break down the locks that our mind imposes on our experience of rhythm and of life in general by seeking a more balanced body-mind relationship.  Musician, singer, teacher of rhythm and polyphony, Baptiste Vaes leads vocal ensembles for 24 years. His vocal teaching focuses onto the transmission of traditional songs and the practice of vocal improvisation. He is an accredited TaKeTiNa teacher, introducing people to this practice in Belgium and abroad since 2014.
