SOMATICS, IMPROVISATION AND THE POETICS OF PERFORMANCE
WITH KJ HOLMES
September 21-23, 2018

This workshop is an entrance into our wide and vivid imaginations through the experiential research of Body-Mind Centering, contact improvisation, and structures and scores for dancing and creating theater.  The course, designed for movers of all backgrounds, will bring forth skills, tools and practical experience of somatic studies and improvisation, to become more tuned to physical centers and subtleties of touch, direction and intention.  It will explore how to use these discoveries to tune the physical instrument of body and mind, and as a source for creative practice into performance: the poetics of the human being through dancing, voicing, writing, reading and witnessing.  In this workshop we will explore anatomy and physiology to better understand the mechanics of movement as well as explore the minds of the body.  You will discover, explore, separate, integrate and improvise with physical systems and patterns to make visible physiological rhythms of support and creativity.  Through exposing contradictions in the body and engaging with our imaginations, we will widen choice, create discernment and practice embodiment and composition.

Price: sliding scale $185-$200-$225 (work study available)
