2020-26 Falling & Rolling

The Falling and Rolling workshop is based on physical and powerful floor work by which many movement patterns involving breathing, speed and release of energy through the body are put to use. By entering and leaving the ground, we will be activating our relationship between our point of center and our limbs, and how this combination works in relation to the floor. We will focus on our bone structure and study the use of spirals in order to understand and improve our efficiency and to heighten our perception and physical awareness. We will study various ways to fall and roll in multiple directions, to drop and lift in a smooth and yet efficient way, by activating spirals from a low and strong physical center. By exploring various movement possibilities, we will create sequences which exist on many physical levels and planes. We will also investigate the anatomy of the locomotor system, in order to re-allocate our energy and conserve it in order to work more efficiently. We will search the body for weight, flexibility and strength through the exploration of multiple energy levels to understand the breadth of our limitations.

In this training we will do special exercises to prepare for this form of physically demanding movement.
