The Dynamic of Touch – Studio Sterrenland
Description: Through dance, we will bring awareness to the infinite layers of the self.
Through touch, we will support an experience of what it could mean to be in a “state of presence” and how it reveals the potential, of every moment, for unlimited choices.
We will investigate touch as a creative power, as a communicator and carrier of meaning, as an active focus.
We will explore movement and stillness from different systems perspective (bones, energy…..), allowing unnecessary habitual tension to be released and stimulating the body and voice natural ability to be effective with minimum effort, to be free to respond to our authentic inner truth, giving space to the unfolding of a wider range of movement and expressive qualities.
For who: Open to everyone interested in the process of self unfolding through the awareness of the body in movement, of the dancing body.
Open Source Forms Technique (OSF): Guided by the philosophy that the source of wisdom and creativity is available in each of us, OSF is a self-propelling, self-empowering technique that through the dancing body is journeying us through the experiential experience of the infinite layers of the self.
The individual is approached as a psycho-physical system of energy able to experience itself only in a dynamic context, in terms of movement and transformation.
Alignment is seen in constant flux, as a multi-directional balancing, not related to a specific part of the body, but to multi-gravitational fields.
OSF offers a methods to access depth, specificity, effortlessness, flexibility and freedom in movement and in vocal practice.
Through the use of poetic images, and its power to offer kinesthetic experiences, we are guided into a wholeness state of deep consciousness. Here our own “dance” would emerge, revealing a whole new range of possibilities, a whole new range of expressibility and creativity.
Through tactile exchange, in couples or in groups, we practice letting go of what is familiar, to open to a new experience of perception, to the unknown, where the letting go of bones and tissues is embodying “the dying” of preconceive ideas, judgments and expectations, to simultaneously allow a “reborn” into novelty, into a whole new being.
Through the action of listening and allowing we support the unfolding of our own process through the seasons of change, through disorientation and reintegration……
The “delicacy” of the class creates an environment most conductive for growth and transformation, where the individual can find trust in himself and in the universal forces.
