Class Description: "Deconstructing Masculinities"
Sunday, June 30th, 4pm-6pm
A workshop open to people of all genders using games, authentic movement, structured talking and contact improvisation to play with, mix up and subvert gendered ways of moving and being.
Contact improvisation has been my primary movement practice since 1986. I also practice aikido and am strongly influenced by the Feldenkrais method, Body Mind Centering® and ideokinesis. My teaching is informed by my background as a professional bodyworker / physiotherapist, my studies in osteopathy, my experience with different approaches to communication, and by my politics. I see my interest in radical social theory and my love of contact improvisation as two aspects of the same desire. I have been teaching the form since 1990.
