Dance and the Alexander Technique with Lucia Walker

This is Lucia Walker's second visit to Melbourne and she is hosted by the School for F.M. Alexander Studies.

Becoming more conscious of aspects of our experience, including sensation, vision, mood, thought, intention and choice, we will explore how to bring more depth to our dancing and more presence to our performance.
We will also explore our relationship to space and to what supports us and look at our responses to stimuli from inside and from around us.

Be prepared to work individually, in pairs and as a group and to be curious about the quality of your own experience. Dancers of all abilities are welcome and any level of AT experience.

Lucia is interested in the way Alexander principles, movement exploration, awareness practices and play can provide a 'common language', which lies beneath different cultural experiences and styles of dance.

Lucia is also running a more general Alexander technique workshop at the school in North Fitzroy on Saturday 12th November.
Lucia is based in Oxford, England and Durban, South Africa. She travels and teaches internationally, exploring a lifelong delight in movement and communication. Lucia was introduced to Contact Improvisation in 1985, studying with Steve Paxton, Nancy Stark Smith, Julyen Hamilton and Kirstie Simson and has been learning, teaching and practicing the form since then. She worked for many years with Jointwork Dance Group, working with schools and community groups. As well as choreography Jointwork focused on exploring improvised performance, which continues to fascinate her.
