MOVEMENT INVENTION Workshop Series

Movement Invention Workshop Series
In this series of movement invention workshops, we will employ task-based exercises and games to come up with new ways of moving our bodies with the goal of discovering something about ourselves.
– Session One
We will focus on kinesthetic and spatial awareness, utilizing our bodies to explore and describe our surroundings and each other. Throughout this session you will become more attuned to your own body and its place in space.
– Session Two
We will explore focus, energy and use of props in our effort to create movement. In this session, you will be become aware of how focus and energetic impetus can alter perception of movement intention and feeling.
At the end of each workshop students will combine the different tasks learned to create a movement score that will be performed to music.
