S-4 / From the Inside Out
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017
Jeremy’s teaching is influenced by Barbara Mahler and Susan Klein, and more recent years of studies in Alexander Technique®, Body-Mind Centering® and Feldenkrais Method. It focusses on integrating investigation and alignment work into contemporary technique. This includes hands-on work in partners leading into improvisation and phrases of set movement that involve moving more boldly and dynamically.
