Mireia Aragones, Tanja Hübner
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2015-16
Expanding into the Unknown
With the help of images, body mapping, hands on and movement we will understand and explore the basic principles of Alexander Technique, which underlie and support all of our actions. In a playful way we will develop a state of ease, presence, flexibility and free of judgements. This will enable us to improvise and find new possibilities of movement. We will discover the richness of movement and force of live that can evolve from the deep and respectful listening of a non doing body. A journey that allows us to embody different qualities by keeping the inner quiet and softness of our body and mind.
