SPIRALS and PERCEPTIONS
The course is suitable for professional physical performers, such as actors, dancers and circus artists, as well as non-professionals interested in developing physical awareness and healthy movement patterns.
During the course we will explore and strengthen movement patterns based on three-dimensional spirals through clearly guided exercises and apply the idea of spirals into movement in space. In addition to the movement exercises the workshop will also develop skills of introspective physical and emotional perception that can be a very useful tool in both professional and private life.
This course will focus on basic principles of the GYROKINESIS® method, created by dancer Juliu Horvath, and explore how these principles could be applied to ‘what moves us’, both as dancers and as beings in interaction with the world around. GYROKINESIS® is a movement method that addresses the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. GYROKINESIS® makes multidimensional movement available by building support through the spine while awakening the full length of the body through spiraling and lengthening pathways.

This course will also include exercises from PERCEPTUAL PSYCHOPEDAGOGY ‘The Sensible pathway’, created by PhD researcher Danis Bois. Bridging the gap between a purely physical and a purely psychological approach, this psychosomatic tuning method addresses the fascia, a continuous web of fibrous tissue that permeates the entire body and embodies a person’s form, habits, history, memories, and movement patterns. Via a series of introspective skills, one will learn to tune into perception of the fascia not only to release tension and assist movement abilities, but also to be ‘touched’ by new understandings directly from the biographic body.
The course will allow time to explore the different applications of the methods while moving in space as well as make time for an open discussion at the end of each day.
