EXPLORE MOVEMENT WORKSHOP WITH SAM TYSON

EXPLORE MOVEMENT WORKSHOP WITH SAM TYSON
Time Time

1pm-4pm

Date Date
TBC
Price Price

£30

This workshop will explore the line between physical practice and play, between structure and improvisation. It will draw inspiration from Sam’s background in contemporary dance and contact improvisation, alongside his current movement practice centred around microbatics and gymnastics.
 
The workshop will be divided into 3 parts. The first hour will be spent exploring play, softening and efficiency of movement through the lens of physical partner games. In the second hour we will isolate specific acrobatic movements: cartwheel variations, the macaco and QDR. Each will be broken down into its fundamental building blocks so that participants can go away with a clear understanding of how to go a ways and practice these on their own.
The final hour of the workshop will look at integrating play into the microbatics practice through the improvisation.
 
Participants will leave the workshop with the feeling that the brain and body have worked hard!

Bio

Sam Tyson is a movement coach: he works with his students to explore a generalist approach to movement, combining gymnastic strength, dance, acrobatics, climbing, parkour, contact improvisation and movement games.
 
Sam’s work draws inspiration from the Ido Portal Method, and on concepts from Playfight and Fighting Monkey, alongside his 8 years of experience in professional dance and 10 years of competitive martial arts.
 
Sam is always looking to explore and learn, and his desire to teach flows naturally from his curiosity to figure things out. You’ll usually find him climbing a tree, or the side of a building, upside down in a park or out hiking and wild swimming somewhere beautiful.”

MOVING IN MULTIPLICITY with Alethia

MOVING IN MULTIPLICITY with Alethia
Time Time

Price Price

£25 Early Bird
£30 thereafter

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.
