With NATHAN DRYDEN (US) and MANUELA BONDAVALLI (IT)
August 21 — September 8, 2023
Monday — Friday, 10:30am – 1:30pm
I.dan.ce International Dance Center
— Plus, a weekend of OSF Advanced practice: 9 – 10 September.
Developed by Stephanie Skura, Open Source Forms is deeply rooted in and fluidly expanded from Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT), with OSF sessions offering potent tools to access freedom, specificity, and courage in movement while integrating vocal practice and creative process. OSF involves: shedding outer layers, accessing primal energy, agility navigating subconscious realms, imagery as potent tool for transformation, and developing a high degree of consciousness without self-consciousness. The practice celebrates diversity, collaboration, and individual creative empowerment as an instigator of positive change on the planet.
The workshop is open to those without prior experience in OSF, SRT, or any formal dance training, as well as to experienced practitioners. The three weeks cover the full spectrum of Introductory Level OSF work plus daily improvisation experiments. Those without prior experience in OSF or SRT proceed chronologically beginning with the first week. Experienced practitioners can choose which weeks to attend. Sessions will be led in English.

OSF SOURCING DEEPER
For those who hunger to dive into the concepts underlying the practice and glimpse the strategies that allow facilitators to create environments conducive to potent transformation, we offer three weeks of OSF Sourcing Deeper. This course runs concurrently with the Summer OSF Workshop with morning sessions followed by afternoon discussions and further practice. While OSF Sourcing Deeper is a prerequisite for OSF Teacher Certification, it is also designed for those who are inspired by research and reflection — who may wish to pursue other applications or allow the purpose of study to unfold in time. The Sourcing Deeper course is by application only. Please email Manuela for more information.
