Feldenkrais classes (Malcolm)
The Feldenkrais method is a somatic educational system which offers to improve the quality, range and comfort with which you move. Since you are moving every moment of your life, improving how you move can improve all that you do.
Feldenkrais method classes present you with a series of movements that fit together like a puzzle that informs a particular function like walking, standing, sitting, reaching, etc. The movements are broken down into small manageable steps and you are guided through them without any pressure to succeed at anything in particular.
In fact, it is not even necessary for you to get the movements right in order to benefit, since it is the process of you paying attention to yourself as you move that is the focus of ATM classes. It is by improving your ability to attend to yourself that can ultimately benefit you in every aspect of your life.
Lullaby singing circle (Kaisa & Terhi)
We invite you to listen and sing Finnish lullabies together. You can sing with us, you can relax and close your eyes, you can share your own lullaby. We’ll have some lyrics but we wont’s teach the songs, just sing.
A Company – Set of Discussions (Otto)
Here is 5 different text. I’m curious how these text might reflect, question, inspire, change your dance.
It’s completely up to you what you will read, but I would hope that if you come to the discussion, you have read the text at least once and explored it while dancing. (maybe in a previous days jam, maybe on class, maybe before the festival).
(because my scan is very bad I suggest you google: “steps to an ecology of mind pdf” get the book and read the chapter from there.
(My scan, it’s readable, from the book “The Inner Touch” by Daniel Heller-Roazen)
(My scan, it’s readable, from the book “Echolalias” by Daniel Heller-Roazen)
(My scan, also from “The Inner Touch” by Daniel Heller-Roazen)
From Agamben’s “Coming Community”
Of course I recommend all of these books, if you have interest and extra space and money.
I’ll try to find a nice place and have some tea for our conversations.
X to X (Kaisa)
This is a laboratory and research structure, with 20 minutes slots to work in different constellations. You can have a question you are thinking about, you can dance with someone you wish to dance with, you can ask for feedback, you can offer feedback. You can come there without any interest and be open to others.
Labbing, researching and dancing in different constellations
- Celebration of learning
- Going towards your interest and curiosity
- All constellations possible, duets, trios, quartets etc
- Dancing, watching, writing, talking
- Going to someone who you wish to learn with and from
- Being available to join and support the learning and questions of others
- Inviting others in to your constellations
