Applying Somatic Techniques to Performance

The experiential anatomy work of Body-Mind Centring(R) is exquisitely primed to support, inspire and hone the performance technique of the fully embodied performer. In this workshop we will apply anatomical and physiological information directly to the body/mind of the actor/dancer. Areas of  somatic application will include the autonomic nervous system to balance the performers sympathetic and parasympathetic responses, utilizing anatomical imagery for psycho-physical support as well as springboards for textured and varied emotional expression, and re-patterning movement through Developmental Movement practices to increase physical availability and technique.
