being 'u-man on the wire - questioning the meaning in procedural activities
with wolfgang weiser
tuesday aug 11, 14:00 - 16:00
venue: IW2-026 (Dance Studio), Irish World Academy Building (level 2)
Walking, sitting, standing and monkey, are standard procedural activities in teaching the Alexander technique. In this workshop we will explore around the meaning of these activities in a reframing context. Our work is about how use affects function and we use the means whereby to achieve an end. But is this always meaningful in itself? By changing the meaning and circumstances of these activities, not the activity in itself we investigate how use and function is changing. It is an exploring into the unfamiliarity of standing a bit higher up, sitting of the ground or walking on the wire of a tightrope.
All Alexander teachers are invited to participate.
