Our body is what we have as a common tool to experience life and leave our mark on it.

Attempts to understand the human body have been in progress for centuries; an endeavor in different forms and colors that has always been aimed at deepening our collective insight into humanness. One of the more recent fields of knowledge that revolves around the above is ‘somatic’ studies.

To introduce this rather recent body of knowledge, Kahkeshān has gathered a number of Iranian performers and dance researchers to facilitate an experiential learning event in a public venue that provides its audience with the chance to savor somatics outside academic classrooms, specialized studios and performance halls. Kahkeshān strongly believes that our world becomes a better place with each individual that understands his/her body as a unique, significant basis of being human.
