Winds of Breath - SRT as da doorway into Making Dances



Location: The Hague

This workshop explores our breath as an essential aspect of ourselves and its powerful role within dancing and making dances.  

The day starts with a Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) class  in which poetic imagery, partner studies and individual exploration stimulate an awareness of the breath. By allowing the breath to move on its own while we move or rest in stillness, its soft, fluid and spacious quality opens the whole body-mind.
A free breath nurtures our intuition and imagination with each inhalation. Breath becomes key for our dancing.

Informed by the SRT practice the second part of the day focusses on compositional work. Experiencing the breath as an ongoing current of air that connects our inner world and our surroundings increases our sense of our three-dimensionality. At the same time our relationship with other dancers and the outer space resonates with greater clarity.
Letting simple sounds travel on the winds of breath enhances the richness of images and stories that unfold in our dancing. This leads into solos, duets and dance pieces in smaller or larger groups.
