Professional Workshops and classes offered:
Choreographer Amanda Acorn, shares the movement practice that is the nucleus of her works, multiform and multiform(s). The two works explore a system of repeating movements in a continuous and unrelenting cycle of vibrating, undulating, circular loops, where the body moves in and out of defined form and perceptive navigation for the dancer. Using the bio-mechanical systems at play, the session will use this choreographic device to explore the fascia system’s ability to navigate and transcend the exhaustive task of perpetual motion.
A morning practice for the dance artist that engages with the practical, the magical and the imaginary. Using the bodies we have TODAY we will explore methods for opening both physically and metaphorically. Looking to bio-mechanical structures as entry points into sensation and awareness we will use somatic practices, breath, athletic and sustained movement sequences to activate a soft and strong body. The class moves fluidly between doing and questioning; contemporary technique, improvisation and durational tasks to cultivate an expanded physical and energetic body.
