3-day movement intensive workshop


“Go beyond small to the place where no message is being given. Start there. Let small be the first of the pleasures to come.”
—Steve Paxton

What is the fluid body? What is a fluid perspective on fascia, bones, breath or structured movement? We all know or it is told to us the body consists 80% of water but is this or can this be an embodied and physical reality both in locomotion as well as in the experience of oneself? In this workshop we will explore theoretical knowledge and concepts with our bodies and in motion to embody fluid form as well as build towards and enjoy fluidity in motion. We will explore sequential movement of larger chunks towards smaller and smaller increments, feeling tissue layers glide and pull on each other as well as connecting to the different fluid systems and functions in the body.

The Axis Syllabus is a somatic approach to dance and movement techniques and a collection of knowledge for learning, researching and experiencing movement. This includes moving with anatomical relationships, physics, bio-tensegrity, ongoing multi-disciplinary research, movement analysis and transmission. An Axis Syllabus class aims to create a collaborative learning environment and effective space for personal research.
