Continuums of Tensegrity: Within and Without
An online Movement Workshop with Daniel Bear Davis!
January 17th, 2021, 10 am-1 pm (EST)
REGISTRATION STILL OPEN!
For movers of all levels of movement experience, ages 16+.
This workshop will explore the concept of tensegrity (tension + integrity) as a framework to support resilient and adaptive movement. Inside our bodies, an internal elastic web of relations creates the possibility for buoyant response and articulate specificity. We will use tools from Axis Syllabus to explore the physical movement possibilities of our internal tensegrity, and use Somatic Experiencing®, cultural somatics, perception explorations, and more to explore tensegrity in the world around us. As we become intimate with the relational intelligence of our own interwoven tissues, can we recognize other networks we are a part of that support a greater sense of resource, nourishment, and possibility? What larger healthy bodies are our physical bodies woven with? What happens when we move with attention to these larger webs of relation?
Daniel Bear Davis (SEP, MFA) is a movement educator, Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner, and interdisciplinary performance maker dedicated to support humans to step into greater aliveness and resilience so we can more fully inhabit the details of our lived experience. He sees one-on-one clients on-line, in the office, and in natural surroundings. He has taught Axis Syllabus, Contact Improvisation, Composition, and Acrobatic Stilts in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and throughout North America. Daniel was certified as an Axis Syllabus teacher in 2013. Whether in movement class or therapeutic contexts, his work is to foster tools for resilience, informed choice, and increased possibility.
