Through the special DFA hands-on intervention you become aware of the relationship between your body and the gravitational field of Earth. You discover how you hold your individual way of being in the world with tension, generally in a strained balance, and you learn how to let the holding go to find balance based on support. This keeps the space around the gravitational axis of your body free, you are “at your best” and your creativity can flow without hindrance. You move with more freedom. You can find the shape of your character’s body from inside. You discover how to open your body to the vibration and movements of the music of your dance, your song or your character.
We explore the emotional and mental contents you hold in your body by means of this tension, for you to have them within your reach when you need them on stage or in front of the camera, or in your own life, without being trapped in them. As you recognize the sensations and the space they take up in your body, you will be able to go beyond the personal meanings you have learnt to associate with them, when you were growing. In this manner you will extend the range of expression available for your art.
