WORKSHOPS 2009

30 November - 4 December, Skinner Releasing Technique 6-10 & Poetry in Dances, Mon-Fri, 14-18h. €150 Amsterdam

The classes are divided in two parts. The first part is Skinner Releasing, for about 2,5 hours. Then we take a short break and move on with Poetry in Dances.

Skinner Releasing Technique ™ (SRT) is a dance technique in which we tune into the detailed and infinite layers of ourselves through the dancing body. It is developed by Joan Skinner. It is a technique which enhances any movement style and any activity. Alignment is approached in multi-dimensional and dynamic ways. The classes are designed to support each individual’s process in moving effortlessly and efficiently. There is an ongoing fine tuning in allowing ourselves to consciously fall into unknown creative territories, through guided imagery and hands-on partner studies. As the imagination is in direct touch with the physical body, it affects the dance in its immediacy of making.  
It is a self-propelling process, in which simply noticing and allowing, support action into newness. Awareness is developed through practicing principles of Releasing individually, with a partner and as part of the group.  

These SRT workshops are classes of the Introductory course, which has 15 classes in total. This workshop includes classes 6-10. It is preferred that you come with some previous experience of SRT, but not absolutely necessary. Just ask if you are not sure about this.

Poetry in Dances In the second part the attention moves to how the poetry in technique relates to the poetry in (making) dances. We work with instant composition, using principles in a way that can be applied to making pieces in any way you prefer to make your work. We tune into different layers, using aspects of poetry such as time, phrasing, space between lines and words, the way poems are read, or written on the page, ways of emphasizing moments in time. We investigate how fine tuning into these different layers and aspects affect the dances we are making.

 The ongoing interest is to dance with an aliveness and efficiency in the body and an inherently perceptive, available and responsive self while composing instantly. The immediacy of the imagination in the physical body, direct action and poetry are underlying areas of attention in each workshop offered.

5,6,7 November, Poetry of (Instant) Dances, 4 hours per day, in Brussels. More details and sign up at Natalia Sardi We tune into the middle space, the space of time in between lines, words, movements, phrases. How can this space of time affect the clarity, timing and perception of the dance itself? We use poetry as parallels to the possible dances and work on how we can create dances as poems.

Poetry of (Instant) Dances. In the afternoon the attention moves to composition, to the making of dances. We work with instant composition, using principles in a way that can be applied to making pieces in any way you prefer to make your work. We look at connections between the technique classes in the morning, to how it works in the body, and composition. We move our imagination, intuition, intelligence, into direct action while composing (choreographing), dealing with time, space and ‘story’.  We tune into different layers, using aspects of poetry such as time, phrasing, space between lines and words, the way poems are read, or written on the page, ways of emphasizing moments in time. We investigate how fine tuning into these different layers and aspects affect the dances we are making.  

The ongoing interest is to dance with an aliveness and efficiency in the body and an inherently perceptive, available and responsive self while composing instantly.
