The Undivided Body

Kurs with Breeanne Camille Saxton

Beginning with a comprehensive "tune in" to the imaginative, physical, emotional, and vocal bodies, we will begin to integrate these planes of expression into an undivided body. The undivided body is one which unites the multiplicities of the body into one state. Throughout this improvisation based practice, movement is generated from a quality and task-based plane generating a proficiency in precise intention-based physicality, musicality, and theatricality. The face, hands, and feet garner special attention in this practice as our most familiar tools to see, visualize, understand, and navigate worlds. At the same time, the practice works towards breaking down the hierarchy of the body and discovering new ways of seeing, knowing, and representing the worlds we move through. We work in this practice to re-connect the mind and body as they once were when we were children in order to free ourselves of our  learned limitations of movement and expression.
