‘at home’, within our own bodies
"As human beings we want to be fully present, embodied, as we live our lives. We want to communicate who we are and what we stand for in action, so that our message reaches out to others. In order to do this we need to find means to connect inwardly, both to what we want to say and to how all parts of the body relate to each other to support our statement and purpose. To do this, we need to know something about the fundamental nature of making connections. This ability to make connections, to create relationships, is a skill which begins ‘at home’, within our own bodies, before it ripples outwardly into the environment and others."
In this workshop Zoi Dimitriou will introduce Fundamental Principles of Movement inspired by the work of Irmgard Bartenieff and her own practice. The work will focus on patterning connections in the body according to principles of efficient movement functioning. Through observation, attention to sensation and improvisation we will explore them further in the context of dance and within a group situation that encourages personal expression and full psychological involvement.
