Pathways Through Us: Flying Low and Passing Through
Rooted in the work of David Zambrano with some inspiration from qi-gong, we
will research ways of directing our energy through space dynamically,
energetically and creatively with other humans. In Passing Through, our
bodies become shared terrain for an every-shifting group improvisation. We
walk, run, lead and follow--- awakening the reactivity and connection
between floor, feet, hands, and body center. Then Flying Low reveals our
own bodies' efficient, spiral pathways for going into and out of the floor.
Together these practices help us to transform our bodies, the group and the
space in which we play. Training doesn’t culminate in phrase work, but
rather progresses through solo and group investigations. How can we each
become a conduit between earth and sky, one person and another?
