After the Storms

After the Storms

In the light of the storms earlier this year we shall be taking the theme of erosion and the resulting re-arrangement of the boundary between the water and the land; the destruction and re-creation of the coastline, and possibly the re-creation of ourselves, over the weekend!
So, walking, observing, absorbing, listening, sensing, dancing, painting and making will become the core of the weekend.

These movement classes emphasise the somatic experience of the moving self in the world. We will explore the body’s fluidity, access to the agency of self through weight activation, and patterns of body connectivity. We will also explore the dynamics and spatial aspects of our movement potential.
The class is based on the philosophy and practice of Bartenieff Fundamentals (part of the LBMS, (Laban/Bartenieff Movement System). This work focuses on embodiment through the experience of the moving body. Its intent is to shed light on both macro and micro patterns of the many layers of movement’s intentionality.
