Movement Play Workshop with Benjamin Joon & Maria Foncesa

TrybeHK is excited to host Benjamin Joon and Maria Foncesa, two contemporary movement teachers from Berlin!

How can we transform fighting into a playful practice for personal growth? How can we integrate loving kindness, compassion, joy and inner peace into our physical communication?

MOVEMENT PLAY develops your capability and creativity with movement games, playfighting and contemporary meditation practice. The integral concept combines physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual aspects.

Who is this workshop for? If you enjoy and practise acroyoga, contact improvisation, dance, yoga, meditation, and martial arts, you will definitely benefit from this! Movement teachers and practisioners will benefit as the focus is both on physical movement and contemporary meditation practices.


nothing creates deeper experiences and develops your potential better than smart and joyful games.


Experience the transformation of fighting into dancing and embody the qualities of a peaceful warrior: benevolence, equanimity, joy and compassion.
