Workshop: Experiential Anatomy
May 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
A Co. AV workshop led by Vincent Cacialano
In this workshop you will work with individuals who studied with founding artists from the history of Dance and Somatic Education. Practitioners who have achieved accreditation and international recognition in both the practical and theoretical contexts of Somatic Dance and Performance.
This workshop will approach moving from the inside out, where each individual can connect to their own movement sources, vocabulary, facility, and inspiration while learning crucial information about the body and movement – information that supports dance technique and all other aspects of movement. We will first tune our bodies with a floor-barre, connecting into our center and out to the periphery. We will do this through the Feldenkrais Method, a form of somatic education that utilises gentle movement and directed attention to improve and enhance human functioning.
We will then transition into physical exploration exercises, including contact work and touch, based in, but expanding the work done in the Feldenkrais floor-barre. This will allow participants to explore concepts within a large range of physicality. In this part of the workshop we will use exercises that enhance ones awareness of space and movement with others. The entire workshop will incorporate exercises that work to release tension, improve posture and movement, and facilitate a deep sense of body awareness and inner and outer connectivity.
All bodies, ages and levels of experience are welcome. No dance training necessary.
