From The Inside Out

Online-Workshop with Jeremy Nelson
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2020/21

Jeremy Nelson‘s teaching connects over 35 years of experience as dancer, choreographer and performer and is influenced by his continuing study in somatic practices, particularly Klein Technique™ and the Feldenkrais Method®, as well as Alexander Technique® and BMC®. Using simple exercises and movement directives leading into improvisation, we will approach our bodies as places of inquiry where we can examine our movement patterns and personal interests as well as open ourselves to the possibility of change. The workshop will emphasize the idea of physical research as a way to deepen awareness of the whole body, in order to discover and explore full and expressive movement. Adapted for the Zoom format, the workshop will be structured to allow participants to follow and participate, as well as see and be seen.

Please note: The workshop takes place online.
