Upcoming Workshops

Movement Workshop No. 3 / BERN
28th & 29th November '20


In the third installment of ‘Movement Practice, CH’ workshops, we look forward to connecting with the ‘London Movement Group’ through movement practitioner & teacher, Wil Brown.

Sharing for the first time alongside Jason Round (Movement Practice, Bern & the MoveMore project), the 2-day workshop will present perspectives on interrelated aspects of each teacher’s research & practice. It is a collaboration in which common ground is found through the meta-title of ‘Movement’.

The event is open to all (no experience required), and represents an effort to connect, build, and support a community of local and global movement practitioners within a worldwide ‘movement culture’. 


Though taking different influences, perspectives, departure points, and movement contexts, the workshop syllabus represents innate commonalities found in Wil & Jason’s work. Some propositions & subjects for exploration include:

  • Broad concepts for efficient & creative movement through space
  • Structural ‘sensitivity’ in one’s body and toward others
  • Basic rolls, cartwheels, and floor-acrobatics
  • Partner-work traversing play & fight
  • Pendulums, pivots, arcs, waves, 8’s
  • Breathing & diaphragm practice

The material will present a micro-to-macro range of investigation, whereby movement on the ‘small scale’ finds commonalities to the ‘large scale’. The practice, then, is to marry them together by mapping what lies between.

In this first opportunity to bring together their experiences & influences from the world of movement, Will and Jason very much look forward to sharing individual and collective syntheses from a variety of movement practices as presented and through the eyes of a general movement perspective. You are very welcome to join!

Movement Workshop No. 2 / ZÜRICH
Sunday 19 July '20

In this workshop, David Nyffenegger (Zürich Movement Practiceand Jason Round (Movement Practice Bern) will be collaborating for the second time to share some of their practice, research, and perspective on the subject ‘Movement’.

The event is open to all (no experience required), and represents an effort connect, build, and support a community of movement practitioners throughout Switzerland as part of a worldwide ‘movement culture’.

This is the second of an ongoing series of workshops in which participants can learn, share, & connect across their local community through the common interest in and practice of Movement.

How adaptable is your practice?

Recent global events have taught us that if we aim to be independent practitioners, an ability to develop self-directed contexts exploring laterally across various movement aspects is necessary. Without this, individual practice can become at best limited & uninspired, at worst mindless to non-existent.

During the workshop we will propose and investigate a variety of perspectives, subjects, scenarios, principles, and tools to help inform and direct a “solo movement practice”. Our goal is to empower participants with a variety of movement frames characterised by independence & self-reliance, exploring subjects such as:

  • Contexts for strength & mobility development
  • Rhythm, timing & coordination
  • Locomotion & floor-communication
  • Task-based movement projects
  • Breathing & diaphragm practice

Throughout the work we will reflect on how to build and sustain a structured & explorative Movement Practice in accordance with your own evolving “movement thumbprint”, as well as our goal to help connect, build, and support a wider community of practitioners throughout Switzerland. You are very welcome to join.

*This workshop is open to all – no experience is required.

Date & time:

– Sunday 19th July 202
– From 11:00 – 19:00 (2x 3+ hour sessions w/90 min break)

Cost:
– CHF 120.-
– Spaces are LIMITED

Location:
Quartierzentrum Schütze
Heinrichstrasse 238
8005, Zürich
Room Flex 5 (subterrain)

*Weather depending, we will also be practicing outdoor. Please bring:

– A notebook and pen if you wish to retain information
– Shoes suitable for outdoor movement
– Suncream where necessary
– Fluids/snacks
– Your own lunch where possible (options are limited on Sunday)

We hope this to be just the first of an ongoing series of workshops through which participants can continue to learn, share, & connect across their local community.

How complex is your structure? We will investigate the adaptability of the body’s internal architecture in a variety of movement contexts to help us learn more about our individual movement restrictions and potential. Remaining curious toward the unfamiliar & unknown, our exploration will take us laterally across a range of subjects for the purpose of developing movement experience, such as:

  • Partner-work & play/fight
  • Prehabilitation & usable range (mobility)
  • Segmentation and torsion of the spine
  • Dexterity of the arms
  • Coordination & ‘Organic’ strength
  • Floor-patterns & sequencing

Throughout the work we will reflect on how to build and sustain a structured & explorative Movement Practice in accordance with your own evolving “movement thumbprint”, as well as our goal to help connect, build, and support a wider community of practitioners throughout Switzerland.
