What happens if we combine a Feldenkrais sequence, a series of movements directed at the improvement of the body, with music, a melody, the rhythm of a poem or the conscious choice of silence? How can we perceive Dance through the perspective of Feldenkrais, a mindful method using movement and learning to gently optimise full-body movement and functions.
How can these both quite different approaches benefit from one another? The idea of this workshop is to explore how functional integration of movement can be taken further and seen in a wider context.
We will start working with the force distribution by our skeleton & bone structures and observe the relation between tension, force and functional movement, while understanding which are necessary and conscious tensions and which are unnecessary and avoidable. The idea is to optimise our movements through an organic organisation of the body and along that line re-activate the flow of movement in the reorganisation and rebalancing of the spiral movement from the feet to the head
and observe how that organisation can act as a force within the expansion of our body.
“From Feldenkrais to Dance” is a workshop that revolves around the interaction between Feldenkrais and Dance based on my own experiences as a Feldenkrais practitioner and professional dancer. My proposal is to open a space for experimentation and discovery through the medium of improvisation where we will explore different possibilities of dynamics and the use of space inside and outside the body while maintaining a healthy integrity of the body. Spontaneity and curiosity will be our ally in exploring different creative expressions through individual ways of discovering.
