Brain Body Connection Workshop Series June 18th 12-2pm
Free Flow Dance Theatre and the W.I.P. New Dance Series is pleased to present a FREE Professional Development workshop opportunity to the movement community of Saskatoon and area!
Dancers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to attend! Please share the info.
Workshop led by Jessie Garon and Shannon Litzenberger of Toronto Ontario.
Drawing from core principles of physical improvisation and contemporary dance technique, we will explore how to work with uncertainty, encouraging ourselves to become overwhelmed, and discover playfulness, pleasure, effort and a sense of humor. Together we will make sensory connections, generate distinct movement qualities, cultivate empathetic response, and investigate elements of choreography and composition such as time, shape, and space.
Through guided physical exploration, structured improvisation and movement-based games and exercises, we will practice using the body as a sensitive, generative, intelligent and responsive instrument of communication, navigating through a constantly shifting environment. This practice will enhance our ability to be present, as well as to effectively embody emotion and intention.
This workshop is open to participants with or without previous movement experience.
