Technique and Visualization

A weekend of movement with Iona Kewney
Friday 6pm-9pm, Saturday/Sunday 10am-4pm, 23-25 March, 2018

The Inside Out Shout.
Becoming ‘the other’ through distorting physical technique and language of movement.
Deconstructing anatomical vocabulary to amplify and focus on detail and become different states of being.

The awareness of the in-between spaces :: hyper-senses and mental transportation.

Training to open-up the unique range of our bodies capacity and dynamics with energising power stretching, strength and floorwork.
Intensive warm-up through sport, release and handstand based structure.
Improvisational methods of my theories on movement and art.

About You and the ability to become / feel something else through dance and thought.

Giving Life to Movement
Visualisation through physicality and its power and fragility in extremes, limitations, silences and relentless underlying will power.
Quality of technical movement in dance and its breakdown and building of form.
Fragmentation, layers and detail of descriptive torsion in a sculptural, highly physical or emotional commitment with euphoria, control and loss.

Working from inner landscapes of thought and the organs charged with their own vibration of emotive energies and pulse of sound feeding the urgency of now and change.

Using the scope of being human; life as the source, as the art, as the reason, a beast with history, in a realist and surrealist context.
This content is at large relevant today as it could be hundreds of years ago, as it touches on human emotion which we can all relate too.

Interaction of different bodies in different euphoria or states of being becoming one through direct actions, vibration and scape of emotional content we shape and project together.

By investigation of the oddity of the body and how this can be used to portray/become the unique simplicity or complexity of form depending on the ways of projecting such anatomical, visionary and visceral ingredients.

The work is a metamorphosis of information. Listening, choreography of space and possibility within and outwith each individual for the capacity to see, feel and create.

BASIC NOTE: Dance. High Physical. Detail techniques. Handstand. Contortions. Floorwork. Artistic vision. Mentality of movement. Anatomy. Improvisation. The body in action.
