Presence and Movement
connecting awareness and movement
Awareness is corporal. You can guide the body through awareness and allow awareness to arise through information from the body. In this workshop we will explore methods that interconnect between movement and awareness. A thought or a shift of attention can compel and engender a whole new movement and a movement can shapeshift what one feels or thinks. Movement can be a way to investigate consciousness and research into consciousness can shape our presence and possibility for movement.
One focus of my work has been the emergence of the fluid body. Fluidity enables spontaneity and spontaneity informs and transforms the creative process.
Focus will be put on connecting to the environment through our senses – on waiting, listening and following impulses. We will acknowledge polarities and acquire a grasp of the pendular movements existing within that.
We will intimately explore the activation, the reaching highpoint (threshold) and the completion of movement. We will do hands-on work. We will be working in diads and triads and encourage the verbalisation of the experience.
There are possibilities for learning and discipline and even more so for the pleasure to expand our presence and joy existing in this relational dynamic.
