Proto-technique – Shapeshifting
Biotensegrity is a new model of anatomy that is emerging right now from within the medical community. I realised many years ago that the anatomical images we hold of ourselves function like ideokinesis in shaping both our movement and perception. In these classes, I will share practices that I have developed to embody images of biotensegral anatomy that offer new experiences of ourselves as dancers. Fundamental to Biotensegrity is the concept of multi-scalar interconnectedness – we don’t move parts but are forever shapeshifting.
Proto-technique classes are focused on the process of how we experience ourselves moving. The aim is to develop self-awareness as a tool for creating and refining our own dance practices.
“As a teacher, I share my inquiry of what it is to be a thinking, feeling, moving subject in this world. I do that through setting up a dialogue with ourselves and our environment in which we are empowered to be our own experts.
I specialise in teaching the application of somatic approaches to contemporary dance practices and how this work can be applied to a wider society. I am certified to teach the Feldenkrais Method® and the Body And Earth® work developed by Andrea Olsen and Caryn McHose. I studied for two years at SNDO Amsterdam, have an MA in Dance Pedagogy. I moved to Vienna in late 2019.”
