Delicious Movement
Grounded in Eiko & Koma’s movement vocabulary, the Delicious Movement Workshop is emphatically noncompetitive and appropriate for all levels of ability and training. We will move/dance to actively forget the clutter of our lives so as to fully “taste” body and mind. Delicious Movement is presented by Movement Research and Baryshnikov Arts Center, and is offered in conjunction with Eiko & Koma’s living installation Naked at BAC, March 29 – April 9. For more information on Naked, visit www.bacnyc.org.

Technique Workshop
A slow movement workshop, for all levels, this class is based on the essential principles of the body and mind which make of up the foundation of Klein Technique. Its goal is to bridge the gap between the slow and focused depth of work done in the stretch and placement classes to moving and dancing. It will utilize and explain the relationship and importance of the pelvis in relationship to efficiency and clarity of movement and then weave together the important connections in the body to better facilitate clarity, articulation, and coordination for powerful and rich moving. Each session begins with a particular warm-up, which changes each week, and ends with moving across the floor to bring all the parts of the class together as a whole. It is recommended that drop-in students have had some experience with Klein Technique. www.barbaramahler.net, www.kleintechnique.com
