Small bodily felt happenings that feel expansive
In this workshop we work with attention and felt sense to open up a landscape of subtle qualities. These qualities belong to the body, to experience, to the sense of our own agency and spontaneity, and also the sense of the limits of our agency. We will cultivate an awareness around the threshold where an impulse accumulates into movement and we will examine the ways movement — or an emergent moving — can lead us to Aha!- or Oh!-experiences. As a group and individually, we will seek to facilitate subtle bodily happenings that are both sensed and meaningful and can be used to support artistic work as well as self-understanding. We will draw on dance creation practice techniques (e.g. Forsythe) as well as ideas from performance studies, as well as different fields of somatic body knowledge, to enrich our movement explorations and research.
