Body in Movement: January 2013
The Body Lens
Dates: 12th-13th January, 2013
Location: Wootton Fitzpaine, West Dorset
[This workshop is FULL. It is also running in December 2012 - places available.]
Improvisation starts from everyday movements: walking, sitting, standing, crawling, lying down, in all sorts of different ways. In this workshop you are guided to become more aware of the structure of your body as it moves through space.
For most of us, our daily movement is something we never notice. Yet our bodies and our movement store memories and habits that affect and condition our whole lives. This workshop gives you a chance to pay attention to the way you move and to identify ways you might move differently.
The central teaching of this workshop is that there is no movement without attitude and no attitude without movement:
Some examples of movement tasks include exploring:
This practice cultivates an attitude of curiosity, generosity, and fun. The workshop is open to all, takes place indoors and needs no previous movement experience.
This is the first in the cycle of five Move into Life workshops. It’s the best introduction to see if you want to go on to try the Movement and Communication, Environmental Movement, or other workshops.
Cost: £120 (excluding accommodation - see map below for local B&Bs and campsites.) Save £10 if you book and send your deposit before 30th November 2012.
“There is a clarity and simplicity in Sandra Reeve's teaching that enables even the most desk- and mind-bound of participants to leave behind any habitual sense of physical awkwardness and explore their body in space like a three-year old.”
