Vision Impure/Noam Gagnon Dynamic Imagery workshop April 24-26
Vision Impure presents a free Dynamic Imagery workshop with Noam Gagnon for National Dance Week: examining and breaking down the body’s daily activity, the Dynamic Imagery workshop will challenge dancers to take a universal approach to movement. The workshop draws from the Franklin Method, which contends that movement is only as good as the body’s alignment permits, and alignment is only as good as the economy of movement. A deeper understanding of the body’s necessary functions – the essential role of each muscle and joint – will open the body to new patterning possibilities and movement practices. The Dynamic Imagery workshop will teach about alignment and how to move the body with maximum efficiency. The whole body is part of a system of coordinated movement, and in every moment, the ideal combination of limbs, joints, gravity, moving parts, connective tissue, and muscle must be found and directed by the brain and nervous system. Dance movement and choreographic language is then built upon this anatomical understanding.
Open level: to register email firstname.lastname@example.org by April 19. Spaces are limited. Participants should bring a T band or may purchase one at the workshop for $15. Wednesday-Friday April 24-26 at Scotiabank Dance Centre. 12-4pm Wed-Thurs, 12.30-4.30pm Fri. Free.
