 pause for thought : time for reflection

 Weekend workshops in London
Fiona Wright

Awareness Through Movement
with space for writing as process, discussion and exchange about practice.

Workshop 1.  Saturday 31st October & Sunday 1st November 2015
Workshop 2.  Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th December 2015

12 noon - 4.30pm each day
Siobhan Davies Dance Studios, 85 St Georges Rd, London, SE1 6ER
Near Elephant & Castle / Waterloo

Open to artists and other practitioners who are looking at a transition in their practice, perhaps thinking about pausing or are simply working very slowly. Also for those with a current interest in age and ageing. No particular training or background is necessary!

The main emphasis will be to work with Feldenkrais Method using a series of Awareness Through Movement lessons each day, developing the connections to how we sense ourselves. With a focus on dynamic stability in movement, using the ground as support in action. This will include working in a way that encourages each individual to move at their own pace, sometimes quite small and gentle, with an emphasis on listening to your own process in somatics and learning to utilise rest as part of your practice.

Please send a short paragraph about yourself and why you wish to participate at this time and also which workshop dates you wish to attend.
Participants can apply to book to attend one or both weekends.
We will confirm your place for the first workshop by 25th September.
These workshops aim to be inclusive to disabled and non-disabled participants.
Please do get in contact about any thoughts on ACCESS requirements for the workshop.

Contribution per workshop ONLY:
£45 Standard
£25 Low Income / Independent

NOTE: We are only able to offer these very low costs due to Arts Council Support.
The total is to be paid in full at least 3 weeks before the first workshop attended.
Fiona Wright has been teaching for over 25 years, working with performance through choreography, writing and installation, using many somatic practices, especially Feldenkrais Method.
