November’s ‘Facilitated OPENLAB’ will be:
The Cosmic Body: Moving Toward Stillness
with Marina White Raven
This session will take place on Friday 16 November, 10 am-1 pm at Chisenhale Dance Space’s Research Studio.
We move alone, at our own pace, in our own style and according to our current physical, mental and emotional state. We take time to arrive, watching and witnessing the breath, the body, other bodies. We notice where there is ease and where there is resistance; connecting and disconnecting, reaching out and reaching in, coming together and falling apart.
The focus of the session is to release tension, identify and move through resistance and explore and tune into finer frequencies and each other. There is an invitation to drop old patterns of thought and action and become open to new pathways for the body and mind.
Arrive at this OPENLAB ready to move, write, make marks, touch, feel, play, share, witness and be witnessed. Be prepared to expand, become and go beyond.
OPENLAB sessions are open to any performers: dancers, musicians, actors and anyone interested in presence and awareness in performance.
The facilitators of OPENLAB are also participants “in” the session and participants can propose their ideas for a future session. If you’d like to know more about this, come to one of our sessions or email Antonio de la Fe.
The sessions function on a pay-what-you-can contribution basis to cover expenses and as an incentive for the facilitator of the session. We suggest a contribution of £7 for the 3-hour long sessions (‘Facilitated OL’ sessions) and of £5 for the 2-hour long ones (‘White Canvas’).
