exploratorium berlin, Studio 1, entrance C


In the feeling of coherence, movement opens up to us as a resonance. Its sound space is a garden built by nature, people and spirit.

We can feel the coherence of the quality, form and character of a movement. Those are a direct expression of the resonance of our sensual participation in the natural, social and spiritual environment.

Perceived movement as resonance carries us far beyond ourselves into the field of communication and interaction.

In this seminar we focus in particular on a distinction between ritual, performance and offering; three ways to approach world across all senses.

This workshop is again open to everyone – including newcomers!


Amerta Movement was initiated by the Indonesian movement artist Suprapto Suryodarmo and developed in a 30-year dialogue between western and eastern culture. Rooted in Javanese philosophy and meditation, Amerta Movement is a practice that cultivates sensitivity, openness and presence. Improvisation takes place in a context in which we develop receptivity and awareness of the constellation and composition of the moment.

Why Improvisation?

Improvisation offers the opportunity to invent music, and to do so without notation. Moreover, this form of creativity is special because it takes place in a group setting. Like in a good conversation, the players develop ideas, which they would not have been able to find otherwise, by inspiring each other.

In the exploratorium we focus on so-called free improvisation, which needs neither scales nor harmony or rhythm schemes. The sound as such is the basis of music invention.

Lerning improvising and improvising learning is about collecting experiences in forming music, understanding music „from the inside out“ and getting involved in the musical flow. That requires alertness in every moment and intense listening to the other players as well as to the collective musical process.

Free improvisation means taking responsibility and contributing your own impulses while simultaneously adapting to a collective at any moment. Learning this is learning for life. To experience this in concert means to participate in a special adventure.
