Feldenkrais Method - Contact Improvisation - Dance Making

Workshop with Thomas Kampe

20th - 25th AUGUST 2013


In this workshop we will use explorations and concepts drawn from The Feldenkrais

Method® and Contact Improvisation. We will explore the use of touch, constraints

and structured problems as tools for finding ease, freedom, new patterns and

greater possibilities in our Improvised movement choices. The Feldenkrais Method®

is regarded as one of the most sophisticated and refined movement education

systems developed in the 20th century. In innovative, playful and precise ways, it

taps the intelligence of the human nervous system to produce higher levels of

function and movement ability. The Feldenkrais Method® is based on principles of

physics, biomechanics and an understanding of learning and human development.


LOCATION of this Workshop will be the San Marco’s Medieval Church, in the aerea of

Aidone (Enna, Sicily). The Church is located upon a hill which faces a luxuriant green

Valley. Quitness and stillness of the surronding landscape will offer an exclusive

chance of going through a unique experience.



The staff will take care of the meals. People can sleep in Studio or Tent at free cost.

In the afternoon, after the class finishes, people can go and visit the surrounding

areas or just relaxing in the place of the Workshop.Musicians are pleased to bring

there instruments along so that we have the chance to play together.



The Workshop is open to everyone: professionals as well as those

passionate about dance and movement. No previous experience in dance or theatre is
