Alethia will lead a highly physical workshop that draws from various movement styles and practices to explore multiplicity in physicality, musicality, dynamics, and flow.
To begin, participants will be led through movement patterns and improvisational exploration to develop awareness, strength, and mobility through the whole body, to encourage flow and dynamic shifts through more complex movements. The workshop will build into set standing, travelling, and floor work material, and will end with working with these various elements through an accumulative phrase.
Throughout, Alethia will encourage participants to keep aware of their own individuality; using given material as a framework to develop their own way of moving, and explore different movement possibilities to incorporate into their own practice.
