FULL DROP INTO THE BODY

10 - 14 September 2018

En workshop öppen för professionellt yrkesverksamma dansare. Workshopen är ett samarbete med Danscentrum Stockholm

The professional classes and workshops I give offer an introduction to the sensation and state-oriented practice I´ve been developing for the last 8 years in relation to my choreographic work. 

 

It focuses on deep fascial release through visualization. Aiming to guide participants towards a so-called Full Drop into the body, with focusing on training heightened listening and awareness of the multiple autonomous inner systems of the body. How to recognize them and eventually to allow them to move us. Letting go of the power of the will and be guided by the inner movements of our bodies.

A part of the work is therefor focused on releasing the professional dancer’s 'outside eye' that observes, judges and separates the dancer from the inner experience, and to practice connecting to and getting conscious of that which goes on within, going beyond the conditioned movement vocabulary of our body memory. This process is healing, as well as an introduction to intensified and new sensorial physical experiences.  

While the practice itself is gentle the decision to let go of control and thereby give into the body and allow it to move us versus us moving it is profound.

In the greater context this work offers an alternative way of approaching the body to those who work with it on a professional level and creates a space for non-manipulated movement exploration.
