Part I: The Pelvis and Contact Improvisation  ~ defining the sculpture within us  ~
with Idelle Packer – Extended Workshop

10am-5pm @ Town & Mountain Training Center, 261 Asheland Ave.

Idelle’s guided explorations and improvisational scores are rooted in her in-depth studies of Alexander Technique, physical therapy and contact improvisation, drawing specifically from her recent weekend workshop experiences with Martin Keogh and Alicia Grayson.

Expect both an anatomical and somatic approach that focuses on internal physical perception and experience. Observe small somatic transformations measured by foundational change that shows in your actions, ways of being, relating, perceiving and, of course, in your dancing.

Become more intimately aware of the pelvis’ sculpture within us, to view this discovery as a conduit to movement of the legs and the entire torso, spine, head, shoulders and arms, to the pelvis’ complex design as source for a lively postural dynamic, a reliable center and an integrated part of full body motion, rolling, walking, offering support as a base or moving into flight. We gain skill and courage to follow momentum and create surprise when we can predict where the pelvis is going!
