Workshop

  • Being 'U-Man On the Wire: Questioning the Meaning in Procedural Activities
    Walking, sitting, standing and monkey, are standard procedural activities in teaching the Alexander technique. In this workshop we will explore around the meaning of these activities in a reframing context. Our work is about how use affects function and we use the means whereby to achieve an end. But is this always meaningful in itself? By changing the meaning and circumstances of these activities, not the activity in itself, we investigate how use and function is changing. It is an exploring into the unfamiliarity of standing a bit higher up, sitting off the ground or walking on the wire of a tightrope.
