Giovanni Felicioni & Rita Geirola - Winlab 2012

Category: WinterLab (Winlab)

Workshop 10-14 December | Mon-Fri | 11am-5pm | with Rita Geirola

Sustainable Movement Sustainable World - exploring the biodiversity of how persons get vertical and unvertical in a context

During this week we would like to invite you into a space where embodied exploration is the medium and the tool for exploring the circularity of experience that unfolds between our "axis" and our "world."  We will base our co-exploring with you on our experience as having both studied with Hubert Godard for many years and to our roots which lie variously with Rolfing, Feldenkrais, and Yoga to name some . . . .

By axis we mean to explore many possibilities, without defining anything for you, from the more obvious organising principles of my "inner line," my verticality, posture, my spine to the more difficult to pinpoint dynamic of forces, at a perceptive, coordinative and meaning level that form my agency in the world.

By using the word "world" we mean to playfully hint at all of that which is other, is context is relational and constantly changing.

With that in mind we would also like to invite you into an open creative space where each of us will look for ways of tracking, recording, exploring the accidents of perception arising from our embodied work. We would like to invite you each to build a sketchbook where marks on paper, splashes of colour, written text and collage become traces of where you are and what you are finding.

You do not need to be good at drawing / writing etc. but only willing to explore places that are unexpected, unknown, new and probably full of surprises -- this, of course, applies to the movement work solo, in pairs or in groups. Ample time will be given for process, integration discussion and reflection as needed.

The delicious rigour of the days will be to sustain dense periods of embodied explorations, observation along side the tracking of experience in your sketchbook. This should allow us to research together the ecology and the biodiversity of how I am moving and so building a world and how that world is causing me to come into being . . . .
