WITH THOMAS KAMPE

Site-Specific Dance-Theatre/Feldenkrais Method/and Contact Improvisation

23-31 August 2008

Eremo Medievale San Marco
Aidone-Italy-Sicily

 

 

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

In this workshop we will use explorations and concepts drawn from The Feldenkrais Method® and Contact Improvisation. Starting from gentle sensory dialogues through movement, touch, vocal work, and expansive Contact Improvisation dancing we will explore the beautiful local environment as a resource for dance making- architecture, landscape, sounds, stories, images form a rich and exciting resource for solo and group work.
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.

THOMAS KAMPE

Has worked with movement for the last 25 years. He worked as performer, choreographer and director in Germany and Britain and works as senior lecturer for dance at London Metropolitan University.
He has taught somatic approaches towards movement education mainly for performers in different settings around the world. He is a teacher of the Feldenkrais Method ®, which forms a foundation for his teaching.
Focusing on learning and movement, the Feldenkrais Method® can permanently improve your posture, balance and coordination, awakening your innate capacity for life-long vitality and continuing self-development.

WHERE
