poise, intention, stillness and movement
A practical workshop in which Paul and Tessa demonstrate and explore playful procedures with movement games in relation to the work on ourselves, each other and the use of hands from out of the Carrington tradition.
From their extensive experience of working in theatre and dance they have devised these 'games' as part of their philosophy of training AT teachers in Amsterdam.
It involves a deeper, more integrated understanding of the primary movement, inhibition and direction allowing more ease and lightness in ourselves, and our teaching in meeting others.
This way of working has proved useful in encouraging a natural expansion of self and a lively presence as a support for a growing confidence in teaching the Technique.
The 'games' involve simple movements in space as a group and with a partner – playful and fun – exploring poise, intention, stillness and movement to enrich the subtlety of our hand-on work, rhythm and spacial awareness in teaching.
