‘The Art of Making Choices’
"In these sessions we explore The Feldenkrais Method as a resource for dance discovery and inquiry. We will explore the use of movement exploration, heightened sensation and structured problem-setting as tools for finding freedom, new patterns and greater possibilities in our improvised movement choices. We will explore the three-dimensional movement potential of our torso to find ease, freedom and greater possibilities in our movement choices as improvised dancers. The Feldenkrais Method offers an accessible toolkit for movement learning. It opens out a relational perspective on movement, perception, and somatic agency, supporting our ability to learn and discover new skills with ease. In imaginative and playful ways, it allows us to relate to our world through complex and multi-dimensional movement patterns." Thomas Kampe.
