We know that Body-Mind Centering is an approach to embodied Anatomy and Developmental Movement.

But it is also many other things -

It is a form of Somatic Philosophy, a framework for questions, a paradigm for understanding how we relate to ourselves, to others and to the activities of our lives and our practices.

Following a tradition of question making, this class, specifically for independent dance artists in Vienna, seeks to deconstruct the codification which has built around somatic practice and return to a core of enquiry and research, cultivating an attitude of, what Goethe called "a delicate empiricism"; or a practical, internal phenomenology.

This process is intended to support how Body-Mind Centering can inform, not only a state of embodiment in performance, but a process of artistic research.
