Dancing Archi-texture and Agency touch & axis syllabus training Touch is vital for learning processes, receiving comfort and feeling connection. In this intensive we will focus on touch as a portal towards increasing our capacity for sensing the architecture, different materialities of the body as well as meeting different parts of our nervous system. We will work with a range of tactile qualities to enhance integration of movement patterns and also use touch to inspire new movement choices. I am interested in building presence and skill for a response – able touch that provides opportunities for the organism to respond with agency. Anatomies and principles of the Axis Syllabus will […]

- Languages of Sensation – Somatic approaches to contact improvisation We will move between exercises aiming to clarify the sensations which lie at the heart of CI and exploring improvisational structures that uncover different types of CI vocabulary. The idea of this approach is to minimise the teaching of set material (moves, tricks, etc) and instead to maximise the opportunities of participants to discover material for themselves through their own research and exploration. Very simply, I set up calm and simple experiments in which we can experience a range of sensations without any demand to move very much. And then we dance a lot. Often there are unusual rules […]

The Density Contact improvisation is not only movement, but also a succession of changes in the state of the body. One of these states is the variation of energetical density, a parameter that plays a fundamental role in being light, grounded and connected to one’s partner. The fascia is the tool through which it is possible to change this physical quality, to adapt, in a fluid way, to the continuous change that improvisation requires of us. The training, that has a somatic nature, will be closely linked to dance and the dynamics that exist in the touch and in the couple’s relationship. Bodywork A basic Shiatsu treatment […]

QIGONG SESSIONS About Taiji (Taichi) Taiji (Taichi) 太極 and Qigong 氣功 are ancient practices through which we can bring the system back into a more whole, balanced, harmonious condition. The Taiji Tao path is a path of going back to the origin, of investigation into the Self, reconnection to one’s deeper nature About the sessions: Sessions will be for all levels, and we will be focusing mostly on foundations. I have found that working with foundations is actually a very advanced practice. Foundations are what hold up everything, it’s where we can work with the core causes of our current condition. So the quality of one’s attention is what we’ll […]
