In all the body disciplines ‘call and response’ is an essential element of the performative experience. 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 performing experience.  The workshop will be divided into 2 sections: the internal, personal response to our impulses and the outer influenced response to each other and the space.

The first part features a somatic practice preparing bodies for movement; using Kinetics, MELT, Feldenkrais, Body Mind Centering, 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 the course features the 9 Viewpoints by Anne Bogart; and 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.

Please join us for Our Moving Selves to explore and experiment together, informing the performing experience with these essential and timeless skills. This week-long workshop is open to professional artists from all performing disciplines. No drop-ins svp.
