Morning Class : Ben Ash

“Class is open to practitioners from all backgrounds. Exploration will be undertaken as solo practice together, as well as within clearly defined relational frames such as pairs and trios, and scored group situations that arise, change and dissolve. Themes for practice may include specific references drawn from embryological movement motifs, philosophical koans*, attention to the materiality of the body, and the use of objects as anchors or feedback transmitters.

I enjoy working with whole body, scale, space/time, detail, risk, weight, and pursuing satisfaction. There may be a palate of phrases and movement riddles as well as spontaneous forms and containers that surface across the week. We may use repetition.” – Ben Ash

*koans – a paradoxical anecdote or riddle without a solution
