Release Technique – Riding the Bones of a Tiger
Release / Holistic Dance Technique
In these classes we will focus on moving from the core. In contemporary dance we define the centre, the physical core, as something that helps us to stay grounded and three-dimensional in our movement, as well as a source of power for subtle and awakened presence.
As we move on the ground our core can be spread out in our bodies, we release and be nourished by the power of the earth. In aerial work (and on the way in between) we need a clear organisation of our body parts from our core in order to use momentum. Released and defined at the same time. How do we transition from one to the other, does it ever stay the same?
Through the core of our anatomy we address tissues such as muscles, fascia, bones, organs and cells. We will relate to these structures and to the centre in improvisation and choreography. Additionally bodywork allows us to experience our “applied anatomy”, breath work deepens our body-consciousness and sensitivity.
Riding the bones of the tiger also means riding the waves of our expression, our inner animal, using its power and archetypal forces. Combining this performance approach with technical material moves us into becoming a beautifully holistic, embodied dancer.
