BMC Workshop: Finding Our Legs - Sydney

A weekend BMC workshop: Finding Our Legs explores how our legs under-stand us.  Our capacity to balance, stand, move towards and away from or in a new direction, cultivates discernment and agency. In the thrill or our first steps we sense the excitement of falling and catching our weight through the action of walking. Standing, walking and running are developmental landmarks, creating new neural pathways.

Alignment is a dance: this 2-day workshop will refresh you with new understandings of your embodiment through a re-alignment of your bones, muscles and soft tissue.

Body-Mind Centering® is an embodied approach to learning, living and knowledge making. Workshops include guided movement, experiential anatomy, imagery and directed touch. BMC invites change that is an integration of our physical, psychological, intellectual and imaginative life.

Alive: Playing with Tone & Tensegrity
Sep
23
to Sep 25

Alive: Playing with Tone & Tensegrity

This workshop is an opportunity for professional development as well as an introduction to Body-Mind Centering®’s approach to the inherent intelligence of the moving body. The practice offers a rich palate of experiences for both the beginner and the more experienced participant.

Tone & tensegrity have embryological and developmental origins, developing in relationship to resistance and support. From early developmental patterns and reflexes we will explore more complex organization – embodying different states and toning through the layers of our tissue – bones, muscles, fascia and cells.

Tone is the experience of balance in our bodies.  All our systems can be supported to find balanced tone – increasing our potential to shift, perceive and create with agility. You will be guided through these somatic experiences with movement, voice and experiential anatomy. In a world of rapid change we need this capacity for adaptation along with the felicity to enjoy being ‘in the company of others’. Playfulness brings delight to all our relationships. 

Dates: 23 - 25 September 2017
Times: 10 - 4pm
Venue: The Chapel Space, North Perth

Aug

Dancing & Improvising - Melbourne

Two–hour classes to dance, play, experiment and compose. Beginning with a practice of atunement, somatic and perceptual techniques will be used to generate original ways of moving, refine technique and develop sensitivity, awareness and relationship to space. We will then extend our practice to dancing and making with others, finding ways to realize the potential that materializes between us. We learn from responding, listening, waiting/pausing and initiating in the differing configurations of duet, trio or group work. You will accumulate skills that inform the moment-by-moment decision making that is improvisation, recognizing moments of serendipity, as we create meaning through the dance.

5-week series for the more experienced dancer/improvisor: Alice’s work offers dancers, physical theatre performers and movement artists unique approaches to technique, composition and improvisational performance.

Dates: 16 August - 13 September 2017 (5 weeks)

being animal - Sydney

to Jun 4

being animal - Sydney

How might we become more human? Taking responsibility for this question in the Anthropocene requires us to acknowledge the complex and multiple forms of life that contribute to the diversity of life on earth. Embodying the Body-Mind Centering® (BMC) Developmental Movement Patterns allows us to sense, feel and know something of the otherness of living creatures. This practice cultivates an awareness of our cellular, amphibian, reptilian and mammalian origins with a focus on how animals interact. Through moving research we will explore what animals teach us about conviviality and learning.

Research for being animal began in Melbourne last year. It was then the focus of my presentation at the BMCA conference in Montreal and was expanded further through a residency with the SenseLab at Concordia University.

Dates: 3 & 4 June 2017

Cellular holding embraces strengthens and recuperates the heart.

The heart has its own profound intelligence.  Over this weekend we will spend time contemplating, sounding and moving from the heart.  Through anatomical images, guided movement and touch you will develop an understanding of the heart’s physiological structure and function from its embryological beginnings to its central role via the circulatory system in maintaining the life of every other organ.

Discover the ‘voice’ of your heart whilst recognising the mystery that always surrounds deep investigation of matter and spirit.  The heart sits at the centre of all this, beating patiently and constantly.

Alive: Playing with Tone & Tensegrity – Sydney

to Oct 5

Alive: Playing with Tone & Tensegrity – Sydney

From our sub-cellular cytoskeleton through muscles, bones and fascia we are a tensegritystructure. These structures create the potential for our adaptation through movement ... and movement is how we navigate the temporal and spatial realms. Toneis the experience of balance in our bodies. All our systems can be supported to find balanced tone – increasing our potential to shift, perceive and create with agility. Agility is a psychophysical state no matter our capacity, age, ability/disability … how we approach life day to day, how we engage with others, and how we make decisions both personal and professional that influence our sense of well-being.

Tone & tensegrity have embryological and developmental origins, developing in relationship to resistance and support. From early developmental patterns and reflexes we will explore more complex organization – embodying different states and toning through the layers of our tissue – bones, muscles, fascia and cells.

You will be guided through these somatic experiences with movement, voice and experiential anatomy. Discovering ways of moving that are original to you rather than prescriptive, frees up the imagination. The use of voice tones our diaphragms and whole being. In a world of rapid change we need this capacity for adaptation along with the felicity to enjoy being ‘in the company of others’. Playfulness brings delight to all our relationships.

This workshop is an opportunity for professional development as well as an introduction to Body-Mind Centering®’s approach to the inherent intelligence of the moving body.  The practice offers a rich palate of experiences for both the beginner and the more experienced participant.

In a rigorous yet generative environment you will accumulate skills that inform decision making in the moment-bymoment composing that is improvisation, recognizing moments of serendipity, those ‘split seconds of paradise’ as we create meaning that suggests itself through the dancing and spatial relationships.
