Space & Presence

A body of space. What does space have to do with presence? How are they related? What are your natural intuitive responses to how you are in space and which other choices could be made? Would it shift the space and your relationships to it and in it? How and where do you orientate and align yourself in the space?

We’ll tune into our dancing bodies through Skinner Releasing
Technique, an ever innovative movement practise designed by Joan
Skinner. It uses poetic imagery and hands-on partner studies to train dynamic alignment and effortless moving (more details on SRT below).

We’ll work in a way that it connects with immediacy and accuracy to being present in space. From there we’ll bring our attention to the creating of dances. How tangible can we make space so that we can work with it not as idea but as actual felt body. Gradually embodying more complexity. A body of space. Could we move from a body of space (technical) in a body of space (compositional)? Being in-form/ation. We’ll work with alive, dynamic presence in alive, dynamic space where there is the possibility and availability to play and allow and choose: the richness of what happens in the dramaturgy and poetry of choreography/composition through space.
There will be time for making short pieces during the workshop where we can watch the dances in the space. The generosity of this situation supports both the witness and the dancer.
This work is aiming to tune into principles of efficiency of moving and clarity of composition, so that it can be applied to different fields of work, such as dance and theater making. A desire to fully engage in movement, however simple or complex this may be, is required.

Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT)™ is an innovative approach to
dance and movement training, developed by Joan Skinner. It is
designed to ease tension by promoting effortless moving and
integrated dynamic alignment of the whole self. The teaching strongly draws on guided imagery and hands-on partner studies, supporting an experiential understanding of both the technical and the creative process in movement. There is an ongoing fine tuning in allowing ourselves to consciously fall into unknown creative territories.
Improvisation is part of the training, coming from imagery or so called partner graphics, supporting different states of presence and awareness of how relating can shift through shifts of attention.
It engages many layers that are involved when we dance and create, inside as well as outside. Softening, noticing and allowing are some of the main areas of practice in Skinner Releasing (other than release), that support action into newness. Softening supports the releasing of strength through efficiency and responsiveness. The practice of allowing in SRT encourages listening. To oneself first. This way we can become more available and responsive to our own dance and to what else is taking place. In the workshop, attention is being given to working by yourself and with one or more partners.
There is attention for hów we work: directing and allowing are side by side, as are stillness and action, receptivity and fierceness.

SRT is different from what has come to be known under the name
‘Release Technique’ in several ways. To name a few:
* It is process oriented, releasing other than release. It trains dancers to be deeply in touch with their own bodies continuously evolving.
* The alignment is approached as dynamic alignment, also dynamic
stillness.
* It brings together technique and creative process through the use of imagery and they way you are working from imagery in class. It is
directed to the becoming aware and evolving of your own individual
process and imagination.
* There is a possibility of transformation through the use of specific
imagery inside the body while moving. It is about experiential
understanding and when an image or any offering is actually felt in the body, it changes the dancing body.
* A layering of depths throughout one class and throughout a series of classes.
