The Body in Motion / The Body in Sound

LED BY: Andrea Nann
DATES: JULY 23-25 |9-11am

In this workshop - geared to any performer from any discipline - we will move through a diverse range of experiences, tuning our senses and attuning our awareness - on multiple planes. Building on a movement philosophy called Conscious Bodies and incorporating aspects of GYROKINESIS®, a movement methodology derived from key components of Qigong, yoga, and dance, we will enhance our abilities to observe and relate to our self and others. For performers - this will create a body better able to be in space in a relaxed way, and respond to others with a deeper sense of self and connection.

We will explore dynamic exchange by activating our physical, metaphorical and acoustic bodies. We will progress through sequences of fluid movement patterns, rich with image and texture, in both solo and group focused exercises. We will breathe, undulate, hum, and spiral together, practicing receiving and giving, and discovering and sustaining our authentic bodies and voices.
