In all the body disciplines ‘call and response’ is one of the most important aspects of the performers toolkit. There is an inner and personal kinaesthetic impulse that feeds the outer expressive response. That response encompasses space, shape, and time; covering all aspects of the performative experience. The workshop will be divided into 2 sections: one the internal, personal response to our impulses (solo work) and the second will be responding to the outer world of each other and the space (influenced).
The first half of each day features a somatic practice preparing bodies for movement; using Kinetics, MELT, Feldenkrais, Body Mind Centreing, etc. We then enter the world of personal movement exploration through Authentic Movement, rivers and Mary Overlie's SSTEMS (space, shape, time, emotion, story). The second half of each class features the 9 Viewpoints by Anne Bogart. This part plays with various ways to respond to the influence of each other and the space through locomotion, shape, text or song. This enables scenes and stories to be created spontaneously, folding in and out of the work.
"....the lesson is how to make it live, how to make it breathe...
The viewpoints training asks us to stay awake inside of a structure" D Mather.
