EXPLORING THE CREATIVE BODY, PART I.

ROOS VAN BERKEL

‘Exploring the creative body’ - Part 1

From inner connectivity to outer expressivity: Developmental Patterning

 Breath –> Core/Distal –> Spinal –> Homologous –> Homolateral –> Contralateral

During a 3-day workshop, Roos van Berkel (NL) will introduce the 6 developmental patterns
that children move through during the average first 9 months of their life. As all of these
patterns form the basis for our neuromuscular contralateral connectivity (think of your
everyday walk), it is useful and interesting to revisit these patterns as adults.

The developmental patterns provide models for our connectivity and invite the moving
body to rediscover the stage-specific processes of differentiation - going from whole
to part, finding the spine and relating upper to lower as well as left to right.

This allows for an experiential journey along the primitive body actions
such as yielding, pushing, reaching, pulling as well as an increased
understanding of the primitive reflexes that stimulate our body to move.

During this journey we will start at the very restful first post-natal stage
and arrive at the expressive ready-to-act contralateral stage, with an
increased understanding of our basic body connections.

This explorative and playful workshop will therefore focus on the
process within and between each of the developmental stages,
leading towards fully expressive dance movement.
