Moving Towards Yourself with Claire O-Neill. A dance workshop for any body…
Mon - Fri 18-22 February 2013

The ‘MTY’ method is a series of exercises to help release and ‘empty out’ blockages and habitual patterns in the body and search for a new approach to your moving body and embrace the dance that is within you.

Through the workshop tasks, including a structured physical warm up, the body and mind are opened up to rediscover the space around us, our relationships to other bodies, and our own possibilities and desires in dance.

Using bodywork and dance techniques (yoga, manipulations, massage, contact improvisation, physical theatre tasks, European contemporary dance methods, composition tools) the workshop will give the individuals special attention to create a small solo or duo. The solos or duos, with directive help from the leader, are for the purpose of unfolding inhibitions, being creative and structured, and/or abandoning yourself to the simplicity of movement. There is no pressure to perform it, but each participant goes away with a film of the solos or duos for their own personal reference.

MTY is a fun and sharing moment to come closer to yourself and understand and celebrate the dancer we all have within.
