Embodied Life Art Program
In 2018 I started a new studies to deepen my movement and improvisation practice. ELAP is founded and led by Marisa Grande and Iris van Peppen and is divided in 7 modules.
1. Pelvis and Psoas
2. Fascia and Space
3. Flesh in relation to Breath and Voice
4. Spine in relation to Time
5. Bones in relation to Space and Time
6. Blood circulation
7. Applied and Integrated knowledge
ELAP described by Marisa and Iris: "The Embodied Life Art Program is a pioneering somatic dance program offering experiential practice for the integration of knowledge through improvisation.
The body, as a whole intelligent organism, is the focal point and the departure for learning. Pivotal for this training is movement research, exploring sensorial perception, self development and applied somatic in performance. It offers the opportunity to study instant composition as a performance skill and a way to navigate in life."
As a violinist I take part in the program using movement, voice, text and instrument. All coming form the body and exploring the system we are working on in each specific module. Each system has a specific quality and it is fascinating to see what arises from that especially in the sound of my voice and violin.
