with FRAN CESK & SANDRA MORELLFROM 13th-18th OF JUNE 2020
Our body-mind develop in a protected liquid environment for 9 months in constant contact. From the meeting of two cells we are transforming into complex organisms. At birth a journey begins where our senses develop and coordinate throughout our lives.
Our skin is the sensitive map that connects us to the outside world. But touch is not perceived only from the skin. When we touch, systems of our body-mind are activated.
In Liquid Touch we invite you to a sensitive journey and somatic exploration of touch in the water.
Aquatic diagnosis - how to read movement patterns. Observe the different tendencies of the bodies to move in water.
Palpatory anatomy - From the most dense to the most subtle ... from the most solid to the most liquid. Learn to distinguish different structures of the body in water environment.
Tensegrity also called Floating Compression - The concept of Tensegrity applied to the human body has revolutionized our biomechanical vision of movement. We will explore the synergies between the elements of tension and compression of the body on land and in water.
Fascia - This three-dimensional network of connective tissues is responsible for our shape, movement and protection. It also transmits information and connects all our systems. We will investigate the physiological processes of fascia in aquatic therapies.
Mirror-touch synesthesia - The capacity to experience a similar sensation in the same part of the body that another person feels. Mirror neurons and empathy in bodywork. Water memory - New scientific visions and their practical application within the human body for therapeutic purposes.
We will explore all of these concepts through personal meditations, one on one sessions, group dynamics and dance... in warm chemical-free water.
