Tensegric Embodiment seeks to understand how the somatic experience of myofascia shapes our understanding of the world. The design principle of tensegrity, based on the elements tension and integrity, becomes the model for the fascial body-web in a framework of relationalities and interdependencies within and around us. Tensegric Embodiment speaks from a place of somatically informed dance practice and unfolds myofascia as a choreographic and relational resource.
Sourcing from my three-year artistic project the matter of fascia, we will journey into the experience of myofascia through movement, eventually jointly developing solos and group scores. Myofascia encourages place-based thinking, and accordingly we will also venture out of the studio for our research. Weather permitting, this will lead us as far as to using natural bodies of water for the inquiry of liquid crystals. Depending on the development of the workshop, we might choose to share our findings in a showing.Kerstin Kussmaul
