Balance in Challenge Workshop Nov 9th – 15th by Peter Sweet and Jea9

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Hi everybody!
For all of you who missed the fabulous first BnC workshop in Berlin: this is your chance to sign up and play and challenge yourself for an entire week!!!
Be quick, we can only host a small group (max. 12 participants).
Cheers, Jea9

Balance in Challenge is an intensive program designed to expand your awareness, deepen your understanding of your own movement and provide you with tools for staying present under pressure.

In three one-on-one Alexander Technique lessons, we will work with you on improving your basic coordination by quieting extra tension and energizing your system towards a dynamic state of poise. In 18 hours of group classes we will explore exercises from physical theatre, clowning, martial arts, dance and juggling. Within this playground, we will observe how each of our ways of moving affects everything that we do. We will challenge you to keep breathing, stay grounded and respond to many situations with ease.

This is NOT a workshop about learning tricks, dance moves or clowning. BUT it will present you with powerful tools to develop HOW you move, dance, juggle, perform and live in the world. Come prepared to play at your own ‘edges’, the places just on the borders of your comfort zones. Ideal for actors, dancers, circus performers and anyone who is interested in the relationship between movement, health and expression. No experience required.

“It is no exaggeration to say that the insights I gained will stay with me forever, enriching my personal and professional development.” Liam Wilson Juggler/Artist

“I had the feeling the workshop brought back what I once knew and now have forgotten.” Henning Fischer MD

When: 9th – 15th November 2014
Where: Berlin-Kreuzberg
What: 6 times 3hrs group classes (afternoon); 3 private Alexander Technique lessons
For whom: actors, dancers, circus performers and anyone interested
Level: all levels; no experience required. The group classes are mainly taught in English. Translation possible into German and French.

Balance in Challenge – A workshop in applied Alexander Technique

May 19th – 25th, 2014
With Peter Sweet and Jeanine Ebnother Trott

This is a highly personalized workshop. You will have the opportunity to develop a rich understanding of your own movement patterns and acquire a set of tools for reducing tension in any activity. In three one­-on­-one Alexander Technique  lessons,  we  will  work  with  you  on  improving  focus,  equilibrium  and  the  ability  to  stay  present. Throughout the 18 hours of group class we will provide situations that allow you to test your own limits, step out of your comfort zones and see how you react to a variety of challenges. Exploring simple exercises from physical theater,  martial  arts,  dance  and  juggling  (no  previous  experience  required)  we  will  observe  how  a  heightened sense of ease can help us learn skills, interact with other people and connect with an audience.

To conclude the workshop, you will be encouraged to apply the tools that you have studied throughout the week to an activity of your choice, be it your stage act, a skill or even something as simple as sweeping the floor or riding a bicycle.

Monday 19th ­ Thursday 22nd ­ 1­to­1 Alexander Technique classes

2 years ago all my friends in Europe started asking me ” have you met this young kid Joseph? He is amazing.”

I later met him at the Swiss juggling convention was deeply impressed by his passion for contact juggling. I immediately subscribed to his youtube channel, Juggling for Cake and he has released some great contact and multiball and 8ring stuff. Seriously just click those links.

They are all full of stuff you’ve never thought of before but it is brilliant. I should have been posting all of them on the Ministry all year, but these recent 3ball videos are just too good so here ya go, this is Joseph and he is seriously one of the best new contemporary jugglers that exist.
