with Lily Kiara & guest teacher Laressa Dickey

Together they draw from Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT)™, imagery, experiential anatomy & physiology, craniosacral approach, poetry and improvisation. In this Summer Intensive, dance artist, singer-songwriter Lily Kiara collaborates for the third year in a row with poet, dancer, somatic practisioner Laressa Dickey, who will offer two sessions. Some of the days their work may intertwine.

In the 2019 Intensive we worked with the spine. As this field of work continues to inspire and move, we will tap into and deepen useful resources from earlier work and expand into new territories. 

Inclusiveness, orientation, spiraling, space: articulation and presence, aliveness and ease, centralities and peripheries, imagination and beyond imagination. Tuning into our dancing selves and tuning into the dances being made with the spine as resource.

FOR WHOM:

The Summer Intensive has been going for almost 20 years and is intended for more experienced dancers, movers, choreographers, mimers, actors, etc. so we can deepen and develop the work in the professional field. Experience can mean different things. If you are not sure but wish to join, please contact me through info@lilykiara.nl As it is an Intensive, it is not possible to come for single days.

“Laressa Dickey’s debut full-length collection of poetry originates deep within the spine. In a language more felt than fathomed, Dickey choreographs sounds and images in swirling, sinewy gestures, …They are poems to be felt with the whole body, ankles and all.”  

– Excerpt from a review about Bottomland, by Sarah Suksuri

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

We’ll tune into the spine to enter into differentiation and wholeness in our moving. How can we use the structure and the function of the spine as well as imagery within the spine as ways to enter our dancing bodies? How can we from there create articulate, lively dances and connect to space (within and without) and to each other? How does the spine promote inclusiveness and support in orientation?

Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT)™ supports the coming together of  dance technique and the creative process simultaneously through the use of imagery, designed to enhance expansion and strength with efficiency and ease. Tuning in and expanding.

The spine particularly offers many insights, directions and openings that are stimulating to embody technical work and to create (instant) dances. We’ll be making connections throughout the whole workshop between how it works in the dancing self and how we make dances, or how dances are evolving through the spine, as we are being moved by it. 

SRT is at the source of what has come to be known under the name ‘Release Technique’. It is different from it though in several ways. you can read more extensively about it on this page: www.lilykiara.nl/srt.html

Through the approach of craniosacral work, we’ll look at how the spine was formed in its embryological development, and how this continues to inform us now. Our structure develops out of spaces that delineate themselves over time. Also: Eyes. Orientation. Proprioception— a way to sense where we are in the space and how we are moving, from inside. 

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle form of bodywork that originates from Osteopathic practice. It holds that the Health of the body is always present in the patient, and that the role of the practitioner is to support the whole Health through gentle and informed touch. 

We include the practise and generosity of witnessing, watching and being watched, seeing and being seen. How does being seen support and affect our dance?
