I played a fun little trick on my Freshman movement class this week. My first class of the Spring semester is on the theme of function/expression. I spend a lot of time in their first semester in the Expressive world- working on their imagination, ability to following impulses, and play. In the second semester I … Continue reading Function vs. Expression for Freshman
I had a magnificent time about a month ago at a workshop with the fabulous Carol Lynne-Moore on advanced Space Theory. The picture above is a shot of some of my notes from the workshop. During her time in the Laban archives in London she made a very exciting discovery about Knots … Continue reading Knots and Effort
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PENAAStfKy0 I created this video for a fellowship application. It gives a tiny sneak peak into the creative research I did for my final graduation project at LIMS.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhkK1r2VzMM I had a great time collaborating with Sally Smart on her Pedagogical Puppet Project. I created this short video summary for a fellowship application.
Finally finished! A poster that summarizes all of the pathways in the Icosahedron by pathway type.
I had the wonderful opportunity to go to NYC last week and assist the fabulous Ellen Goldman teaching a class on the Knots in the A and B scales at the Laban Institute for Movement Studies. A little shaky with the concept of knots and lemniscates, arguably one of the less solidly defined areas of … Continue reading Knots in the A and B scales
I love the Passion drive, and its cluster states. I'm particularly a fan of the Dream state. I could sit alone, day dream, and express myself in weight and flow with little recuperative Awake state for hours. It feels good to me to be so in touch with my internal state, and without Space Effort, … Continue reading Passion Drive: A Blessing and a Curse
Right now I'm working on creating a poster that lists ALL 132 spatial pathways within the Icosahedron. They break up into 24 transversals, 24 counter order transversals, 60 peripheral, 12 central, and 12 transverse pathways on the periphery of a plane. Whew! At first I lumped the 12 transverse pathways on the periphery of a … Continue reading 132!
I'm doing some light reading of Choreutics. Why? Either I'm trying to punish myself or Space Harmony is the most fascinating field of study ever. Probably both. Once again I am upset about the A and B scales. I can't put my finger on what exactly is so upsetting about these scales, but there is … Continue reading A, B, why?
Here is the motif and a little sketch of the pathways for the Octahedral 6 Ring video.
