Weave : Feldenkrais Method as choreographic process
The practice-led choreographic research project Weave aimed to bring together a team of international contemporary dance makers and experienced somatic practitioners to investigate the use of the Feldenkrais Method® as a resource within choreographic practices.
The specific aims of the project were multi-facetted. On the one hand this project sought to work through collaborative processes of networking between advanced somatically oriented dance makers, including qualified Feldenkrais, Body–Mind-Centering™ and Pilates practitioners, thus placing the Feldenkrais Method in a fluid, discursive, trans-cultural field; on the other hand, a focus of the process was to probe a potential of Feldenkrais based processes to intervene with or enhance choreographic processes with a specific focus on the re-working or extending of existing works.
