So how does all of this work: flexibility, strong centre, opening of the hips, grounding and the loose neck? How much strength is necessary and how much is too much? And what do all these terms actually mean? How does freedom in the movement feel like?
These and other thoughts are the starting point to gain an insight into applied and living architecture of the body, biomechanics and physics. With a new understanding for relations we can observe individually inherited as well as constitutional limitations and explore resulting movement potential. With skilful coordination and the holistic interplay we will dance, improvise and explore the sustainable, feel good and individually adapted movement range. This Workshop requires curiosity and a natural spirit for research.
The Axis Syllabus can be considered an information resource pool filled with tools, tactics and knowledge for continuously improving movement education and training practices for dancers and everyone that desires to move. The AS claims to be a detailed systemic and a continuously redefining movement analysis that is based on on-going empirical, multi-scientific and pedagogical inquiry. Knowledge is gathered, organised and tested by a community of teachers and students from all walks of life. Safe falling reflexes, transitions, finding healthy range of motion, injury prevention or kinetic efficiency are some of the key objectives. An Axis Syllabus class aims to create a collaborative learning environment and effective space for personal research.
