Attached – a research in progress
In May 2018 Me and Rosamond Marting spent 5 days in the creation studio at NCCA researching: Connections between people. How we can create our environment and how we can change our environment. How human connection exists whether we want them or not, the power we have when we work together and the importance of a community.
How our practise can be a reflection of our lives: I believe human were born open, responsive and playful and Circus is a great playground for it and so should it be…
We were learning about Feldenkrais, and we facilitated space for discussion to see how the method can be applied to circus performers training and how it can benefit the performers practice and function as a vehicle for creativity, find new ways in which we move. Taking tools used within it to enhance awareness, connection to the body, the self and the action. Feldenkrais also provides a means of fine-tuning awareness in response to the space and/or the other, with hands on work we explore different types of touch, listening and responding through the body, and functional movement exploration increases one’s ability to isolate parts and manipulate the body in response to internal and imagined or external and visibly physical stimulus.
