[Workshop] Adhering to and rupturing dynamic affinities for creative practice and dynamic movement training
Adhering to and rupturing dynamic affinities for creative practice and dynamic movement training
Explore Rhythm and Effort, their affinities with time and space through embodied understanding of harmonic principles.
Online workshop, November 26
About the workshop
This workshop explores Rhythm and Effort, their affinities with time and space through embodied understanding of harmonic principles. Exploration includes rupturing the principles to engage with creative possibilities for dynamic movement phrases.
Ali will work through collaborative tasks exploring metric and arbitrary rhythmic phrases in movement embodying the changes in intention and expressivity resulting in individual and group cohesion.
We will explore actions and their affinities with time and space.
This workshop is devised using Laban theories of Eukinetics/Effort/Rhythm and refers to Laban’s theories of Choreutics 1966 (Space Harmony) and the notion of “choreological order” (1966, p6), that is, Laban’s proposal of what constitutes a “sensible sequence” in movement, which is seen and experienced as harmonic.
By understanding these harmonic principles, we can creatively fracture them to access different dynamic and action possibilities.
