ENDLESS MOVEMENT PRACTICE (EMP)

A somatic investigation of the body in action and stillness. 

ENDLESS MOVEMENT PRACTICE (EMP)

What is EMP?

Retro and avant garde. Back to basics. Jettison specific techniques, labels and bodywork franchise. Just be with the body, the action, the experience and the outcome. A theatre of the moving sensory self. This practice provides examples, exercises and experience of fundamental movements and alignments. Deep work and deep fun. As we train our bodies our potentials shift. There is no stasis, only continuous becoming. We move, we change. We are. Endless movement.

Classes & workshop

The work is an investigation which each person carries out according to their own particular condition. Typically a class or instruction or workshop takes place through statements or observations to the very obvious nature of the body.

We make an observation and we ask a question. We listen to the way in which certain things happen to us or through us and we interact with the material.

When I was young my first encounter with movement was with martial arts. Then India for a year of yoga. Dartington college: studied movement dance for performance.

Been involved with physical theatre and dance since 1978. My background is very much is as somebody who performs using the human body. My personal contribution to the dance world has been in expanding the vocabulary within particular modes of working.
