THE ART OF BALANCING
with Trisha Hemingway, UK & Wolfgang Weiser, S
Summer Course for AT-teachers and experienced performers 27/7- 30/7 Anga, Gotland – Sweden
Sensorial Experience – Balance Work – Circus Skills – Balance Art
This practical workshop will provide you with a number of unusual activities. Participants will gain new ideas and experience about their balance, habits, co-ordination and movement. The basic idea is to use for the participants unfamiliar activities, to give them the chance to work with the Alexander Technique as psycho-physical education. Regarding the abilities of participants, we will explore balancing on the floor, on the balance board or on the tightrope. We might also work with juggling and other physical-thinking activities. The schedule consists of movement and balance in momentum by organization of body-mechanics; Balancing whilst moving with objects, Balancing off the ground by rope walking or balance board and individualized work & work in small groups about how to teach performers. We will simply investigate in the art of balance, relate as Walter Carrington wrote to ‘Balance as a function of intelligence’ and study the aspect of dynamic re-organisation.
