(in and out of the lineage of Barbara Dilley, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and Developmental Movement)
Inhabiting and moving between the four postures of human presence – Lying Down, Sitting, Standing, and Walking – we uncover and discover the essential developmental patterns of movement in the human body – Homologous, Homolateral, and Contralateral. We play with weight, release, transition from one level to another, timing, and repetition as a way of freeing the human instrument for expression. As we move from horizontal to vertical and back again we expand our capacity to embody our evolutionary and personal experience. In our movement between these postures we surrender reach push pull grasp roll stand and be.
