W-2 / BodySchool : Caring for our Necks
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2016/17
BodySchool is the application of somatic and contemporary dance techniques to everyday life situations. In this workshop, Malcolm shares some of the resources he collected and developed while overcoming a serious neck injury. Feldenkrais, experiential anatomy, ideokinesis and explorations of spatial orientation are woven into a process aiming to support easier alignment and integration of the neck.This includes ways of understanding the neck in anatomical terms and using orientation to the external environment to support easier alignment of the neck.
