Using a somatic approach, this workshop proposes that through an inquiry into sensation, we can discover and map out the spaces in and around the body to reveal a space that is sentient and in partnership with the body.
The work uses breath and imagery – twin tools found in both contemporary somatic techniques as well as traditional qigong methods – to address resistances and blockages while honoring the interconnectedness of the whole body. Special attention is placed on the role and function of curves and spirals, as both strategy and landscape of the dancing body.
Participants can expect a range of experiences – from simply lying on the floor breathing, to more formal qigong exercises – to take them into a dance that comes merely from observing the sensations in their body and adjusting with and around those sensations.
