Wednesday 24 June | 17:00-18:00
During her residency Ilse van Haastrecht looked at various layers of the human body. Such as the joint integrity, spinal mechanics, architecture of the foot, muscles as landing cushions.
Through the lens of the Axis Syllabus Lexicon Ilse tested tactics for healthy and safe locomotion and studied how it affects her dancing. In the Study Labs she shared her findings with a group of curious movers, in order to practice sharing these parameters for falling into grace with our dancing body.
During the presentation Ilse will elaborate on some of her findings and conclusions. She will also share about what the Axis Syllabus Lexicon is and there will be a mini workshop walking mechanics.
You are all very welcome to come and participate
finding ways of ramping down and away from the floor
In December Ilse started with her first sessions of Axis Syllabus hosted by CLOUD. This class is about different ways of distributing masses toward the ground and back up again. How do I deal with the kinetic or potential energy stored in my raised body when ‘falling’ down?
You are welcome to join me in another Axis Syllabus Study Lab. All kinds of movers are welcome : ). This time Ilse will be looking into different ways of distributing masses toward the ground and back up again. How do I deal with the kinetic or potential energy stored in my raised body when ‘falling’ down? We’ll be looking at sequential movement and how it can help for effective locomotion. We’ll also be studying the different landing and launching pads of the body, in order to find a safe stations on our way to the floor.
What is Axis Syllabus?
The Axis Syllabus is an open resource pool for information about the human body in motion. The AS research community aims to compile knowledge and reference points to understand more of what it means to move in healthy and structurally supported ways. This information is constantly tested and updated throughout research and classroom experience.
Situations, contexts and challenges for the moving body keep changing and different bodies and their individual needs are various. Looking at anatomy, physics and bio-mechanics might help us to find ways into graceful movement.
