Contemporary Dance – Body Works (Symposium)
The term somatic has become fairly mainstream in the world of dance and performing art in our contemporary self-help culture. The somatic lexicon has become so intertwined with contemporary dance that for some it has become the basis of the technique in itself (Brodie & Lobel, 2012). Engaging somatic practices in one’s dance training is a powerful tool in creating efficient, expressive, creative and intelligent dancers who can move propioceptively from the inside out. Join this exciting discussion with local and international practitioners about Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais, Pilates and other somatic practices that can tune your body to work expressively until you are 80 and beyond!
Place: Company Studio, UCT School of Dance
