DIRECTIONS AND RELATIONS WITHIN THE BODY AND THE SPACE
Kinaestethicians association’s Spring 2019 intensive course draws focus to the directions and relations within the body and the space. The course is lead by Heidi Vierthaler. Heidi has worked with some of the most prominent companies and choreographers throughout Europe and the US, including Gothenburg Operan Dans Kompani, Ballet Frankfurt and The Forsythe Company. Currently she teaches and creates works for companies, festivals, and universities worldwide. Including: The Netherlands Dans Theater Summer Intensive, Carte Blanche, Gothenburg Operan Dans Kompani, Norrdans and Skånes Dans Theater amongst others.
“We will work on separating the body into small sections from joint to joint and space to space. We’ll also work on movement phrases that will allow surprising initiations, and a richer result with less effort and a rich palette of dynamics. Heidi incorporates elements of the Laban system, bringing in spatial awareness and the 8 efforts to shift movement qualities and dynamics. In the end, we will blend our personal experiences with new ideas allowing transformation occur and a new approach to access the body emerge.”
Heidi’s inspiration for her method, Stream-Flow, come from several different sources. It is a unique and constantly evolving tool for dancers and non-dancers alike, using visual imagery and tactile exercises to help release the body, heighten awareness on many levels and to break habitual movement patterns. From simple ball imagery exploring inner and outer body, to delicate touch guidance causing an array of dynamics from extremely fragile to surprisingly powerful.
Her Stream-Flow method has been recognised as an effective somatic movement method that focuses on developing the individual. It has been featured in a recent publication of dance practices amongst dance institutions throughout Europe including in Jenny Coogan (Ed.) Practicing Dance: A Somatic orientation.
