11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
In this workshop you will learn the basic foundation of the Forsythe technique. The class will incorporate the fundamental warm-up, intrinsic to understanding the technique, and then move onto basic modalities. This particular improvisational technique enables each person to access movement, in part, by interpreting their body in space – a different version of space! All dimensions of your body will be challenged. You will learn to move and not to pose. This language is fun to learn and easy to refer back to because it is a technique. In this short time you will have an understanding of what the Forsythe Technique is.All students are encouraged to bring a notebook. Bring socks, no bare feet. Ask many questions! Helen Pickett has taught this class for 10 years all over the world.
