Margrét Sara Guðsjónsdóttir: Full Drop Into the Body
This workshop offers an introduction to sensation and state-oriented bodywork. It aims to guide participants towards a so-called Full Drop into the body, in search of the potential for an increased presence on stage. In the greater context, this workshop offers an alternative way of approaching the body itself, and those who work with it on a professional level, and creates a space for non manipulated movement research.
A part of this research is to release the professional dancer’s "outside eye" that observes, judges and separates the dancer from the inner experience, and to practice connecting to and getting conscious of that which goes on within beyond the conditioned body memory. This process is healing, as well as an introduction to intensified and new sensorial physical experiences. During this process of unwinding, both psychological and physiological barriers of resistance can be met. While the practice itself is gentle, the decision to let go of control, and thereby give into the body and allow it to move you versus you moving it, is profound.
This process simultaneously questions older concepts of how we relate to our professional body and methods of disciplining and dominating that body in order to gain control over it and have it perform.
