Balance in Challenge Workshop 2016 – Peter Sweet and Jea9

Hello everybody,
there are a few places left! So sign up for this years expanded edition of our Balance in Challenge workshop in Berlin. 8 days of pinpointed practical ‘research’ on your Self, your arts, your ways of life.
See you there,
Jeanine

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 30 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.

The return of Metra

Japanese contact juggler Metra, who has been featured on this blog many times before, has returned after several years absence from the scene with a set of new videos and new techniques. I’m especially impressed with his style of small silicon ball multiball, and many of the techniques he showcases in this video are totally new to me.

Metra linked me to several videos that he was using as inspiration, check out these clips below for a completely different approach to ‘palmspinning’ technique.

Workshop – Balance in Challenge – Berlin May 19-25th

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.
