Workshop with Jeremy Nelson
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2017/18

This workshop is influenced by Nelson’s 30 years of continuing study in the work of Barbara Mahler and Susan Klein, and more recent years of studies in Alexander Technique®, Bodymind Centering® and Feldenkrais Method®. The focus of the workshop is to integrate this investigation and alignment work into movement. We will focus mostly on our skeletal structure and its connections, allowing more mobility and suppleness in the superficial muscles and more efficient use of the floor. The intention is for each student to experience and develop the awareness of their own body and recognize its individuality. We will incorporate a variety of approaches including hands-on work in partners leading into improvisation that help deepen our awareness and give us the opportunity to really experience some of these ideas in a physical way. As well as using improvisation, we will also take our work into simple activities and exercises in order to try and integrate this new awareness into our body’s movement patterns, and finally build to phrases of set movement that involve moving more boldly and dynamically.
