28 november – 2 december 2022, Dansklotet, Wallingatan 19
A workshop in collaboration between Dansalliansen and Danscentrum Stockholm
The method is generated through years of research, observation and adaptation to our current times, and based on breath, movement, emotion, thought, intention and environment. Its main goal lies on enhancing humanness in its most raw and genuine form. This method creates a safe and honest place that embraces and acknowledges our inner world, both weaknesses and strengths, to learn how to use them through reflection and striving for further development.
It is an interconnected training system that utilises movement as a base to create, confront and play within crisis. It provides the timespace to get to know one’s personal form and how to use the body to broaden the range of movement vocabulary.
As an holistic form, it is inspired by tools from specific lineages, such as breath, meditation and the inner mechanics of yogi principles, while also utilising the movement and philosophies from kalari payatt. This interwoven structure combines and rearranges these tools and ideas in a proposal for a new approach.
In these classes, one can expect a dedication to raising awareness to individuality and inner workings, an awakening of the senses that leads to an ability to control and manage external triggers. In other words, taking charge of ones self.
