My passion is contemporary dance and in order to develop my technique and my style I have taken part in numerous workshops and training sessions worldwide. I received my basic training at the Laban Dance Centre in London and at the ZTTS in Zurich.
Phenomenology offers one view of this leap by looking at dancing as a so-called pre-reflective experience as a „not -able-to-think-about -it-seperate-from-doing-it“ experience.
It is well known that mind and body can polarise.
We can sit still and think.
We can get up and move with our thoughts elsewhere.
The mind can seem to dominate,
the body can seem to function without it.
In dancing everything comes together.
Laban advised dance people: „Don‘t think in words, they separate.
Think through the processes of moving, which is unified“
Dancing is feeling-thinking-sensing-doing with imagination. When these get together, the experience is phenomenal. That‘s IT.
You have to feel fully and exclusively responsive to what is taking place, here and now.
