About the Event
Share, Dance and Feel Free To Be Yourself... Welcome to EMOSHPIT.
Are you quick to anger or tears? Or do you rarely show your emotions? Society has expectations for us to behave in certain ways so we often hide how we are authentically feeling. How nice would it feel to properly let go and express all of who we are? The light and the dark... Welcome to EMOSHPIT - Share, Dance and Feel Free To Be Yourself...
The purpose of EMOSHPIT is to help heal not hurt. Connect with each other more deeply via sharing circles then let loose on the dance floor and release whatever's come up to dubstep, DnB-type sounds sprinkled with banging rock tunes!
To be authentically ourselves we need to face and embrace all of who we are. Our go and flow energies, light and shadow, destruction and construction. This is a place to let out our energy physically and emotionally. To find peace and a sense of balance through speaking out and rocking out. EMOSHPIT celebrates all of what it is to be a human animal, our power and aggression plus our nurturing side through talking about how we feel.
Join us for sharing in supportive group circles followed by an hour of all out letting go, sweaty dancing.
IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT GETTING HURT: To be doubly clear the purpose of EMOSHPIT is to heal not hurt. The centre of the dance space will be for consensual contact between people and the edges will be for more solo dancing.
PLAN OF THE EVENT:
PART 1: CONNECT VIA SHARING CIRCLES: Sitting in groups of 5 or 6, each person gets time to open up and share about how they are feeling followed by a short round of reflection (NOT advice) so they feel seen and heard.
PART 2: DANCE IT OUT VIA THE EMOSHPIT: Release whatever's come up via a wave of dubstep DnB, type tunes speckled with some all out rock favourites to really let loose!
This is NOT a place to fight. We are here to help each other NOT hurt each other. No punching, kicking, biting, etc.
It's very unlikely but, if someone does fall down, we pick them up. Treat others as you wish to be treated.
This is NOT a place for advice, it’s a place for release and support.
If you’re angry that’s okay, we all are at times. If you act angrily with intention to hurt someone you’ll be ejected from the event.
Clothes as if going to the gym - loose fitting so you feel free to move
Notebook might be useful too
MUST READ - IMPORTANT NOTE: While the intention of this practice is very much NOT to hurt anyone, the idea is to make a bit of human contact and support each other in the expression of our inner animals. With this in mind, although unlikely, you might get a slight bruise here and there. Some might like that, some might not, either way if you are bothered and don't want to risk even the possibility of any very mild injury then please refrain from partaking in this event. Plight Club run regular sharing circles that you're more than welcome to join.
