THE PRACTICE mit Lucía Toker

18. & 19.06.22

tools for movement development & exploration

The objective is to provide specific technical tools to deepening and develop movement and exploration capabilities. The work is inclusive for all levels, since the tools that are shared can be covered from the experience that each person has. Always respecting the personal possibilities, I do not push or pretend a specific result but invite to have an empathic experience. I use exploration as a vehicle to integrate, dynamize and test the given tools in dialogue with the own possibilities and backgrounds. I propose a concrete methodology that can be learned and applied to technical research in any discipline as well as in the area of artistic creation. Part of this methodology proposes strategies to generate self-management and independence for the development of personal practices.

The proposal are adapted and the information shared is specially organized for the different course formats.
