Open floor movement practice – Bare Bones – closed group – Wednesday mornings
During each session of a series, we explore and deepen another aspect of Open Floor. Through dance, you get to know the different dimensions and relational needs. By means of different anchors and core movement resources you learn how to discover all layers and how they are related to each other. This way, you take the time to grow and to feel what Open floor can mean to you in your daily life and how to integrate it.
Bare Bones is a dance meditation for building muscular intelligence, the ability to be awake and fluid, to articulate the innate symphony of wisdom and expression waiting just below our skin.
We ask our bodies and let them speak:
- What part of me has forgotten how to move?
- Where am I fluid and where am I bound?
- What gestures purr, hum, hurt, hesitate?
- Who do I gravitate towards?
- What propels me to shy away and…
- What makes my body sing?
Our inquiry becomes one of ratio: How much of our huge life force is devoted to keeping ourselves moving in repetitive, habitual patterns? How much is left for creativity, loving connections, the willing surrender to change?
It’s a dance to get up and make a cup of coffee if we pay attention. To paraphrase Louis C.K. “We’re a masterpiece of movement and nobody’s noticing.” In every moment we are literally being pushed and pulled, drawn down and lifted up, being thrown off balance and finding it again.
The goal is a body is that moves with it all and tells the tale.
This is the infinite choreography for Bare Bones.
