Waves and Undulations – Exploring the Spine
For her research at Cloud, Ilse van Haastrecht asked herself the question: can I actually feel my spine? Where can I touch it? What happens when I move and when I change levels? What is proprioception? You are welcome to join Ilse in pursuing these questions.
During the Lab, participants will explore these issues through improvised assignments, with prepared material, to study anatomy and to see how we can apply this knowledge to the moving body.
This lab is part of Ilse’s trajectory as a candidate teacher of Axis Syllabus. She looks forward to exploring together with you and she is open to your input and feedback.
What is Axis Syllabus?
AS is an open resource pool for information and findings about the human body in locomotion. The Axis Syllabus Research Community (
www.axissyllabus.org) aims to compile knowledge and reference points to what it might mean to move in healthy and structurally supported ways. The information is constantly tested and updated through classroom and research experience.
The challenges, aims and contexts for the moving body keep changing, as different bodies, situations and individual needs are various. Looking into anatomy, applied physics and bio-mechanical functioning, serves as a frame to help finding best ways of educating ourselves into graceful movement.
Where: Cloud@danslab, De Constant Rebecqueplein 20b, Den Haag
When: Wednesday 17th of December
Contribution: a donation for the studio rent (suggested € 5)
The lab is open to anyone interested in the moving body. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Ilse van Haastrecht.
If you wish to invite friends, please do so. Spread the word!
