A philosophical perspective on human movement with Frey Faust (2014)

Frey Faust is the originator of the Axis Syllabus, which he describes as ‘an open-source platform for the cross-correlation of stories and points of view concerning historical and current human movement habits and practices’.  His talk sets out to present how his research process has led to some startling discoveries that challenge some commonly held beliefs and traditions.  Notions of a constant centre of gravity and of ‘neutral’ positioning are amongst the beliefs he examines, as are the claims that imagination is better than science or that more mobility is necessarily healthier. 

This talk was part of Crossing Borders 2014 and was presented in partnership with London Contemporary Dance School.
