WinLab 2017: K.J. Holmes

Category: WinterLab (Winlab)
Description: Improvisation, Somatics and the Poetics of Dance
Monday 11 – Friday 15 December, 11am – 5pm 

This workshop is experiential research of Body-Mind Centering®, contact improvisation, and structures and scores for dancing. Exploring anatomy and physiology to better understand the mechanics of movement, 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.

The course, designed for teachers, creators and performers in dance and theatre, will bring forth skills, tools and practical experience of somatic studies and improvisation, to become more tuned to physical centres 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: the poetics of the human being through dancing, voicing, writing and reading.

Workshop fee includes free ticket to K.J’s Artist talk on Tuesday 11 December
Time: 11:00am-5:00pm
Date: Monday 11 December, 2017
