Description


October 4-6, 2019 | Friday 7–9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.–3 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Maureen Fleming is an American choreographer and performance artist whose surreal movement poetry gives birth to a new vision of the body. In this workshop, Fleming will share her distinctive approach to alchemical movement, which opens crevices within and creates an embodied transformation. She will guide you to your deepest creative core, helping you discover and reveal the transcendent that resides in physical form. Her discipline imbues catharsis and alchemy into strength, flexibility, and balance.



“Maureen’s ‘inside-out’ training enables you to access deep energetic states to move the body ... — a completely innovative and pioneering method. An event not to be missed.”

Deborah Jinza Thayer, former student



This deep, regenerative inner work allows for a more complete realization of your personal and creative vision and is geared for dancers, directors, actors, singers, butoh enthusiasts, therapists, and anyone interested in discovering their movement potential. This introductory workshop is the first step in Fleming ElastxxTM (patent pending) Teacher Training Program and culminates in: Level 1 certification: includes Elastxx ($140 value) and manual.

YOU WILL LEARN:

– FLEMING ELASTXXTM (patent pending) - an original training method that initiates movement and voice from the innermost layer of muscles. Using an elastic exercise device, invented by Maureen Fleming, strength and flexibility are developed through the targeting of core muscles, in particular, the psoas.

– THE 10 IMAGES - transformative imagery that helps you move past the physical form and create a useful alignment that can be applied to all movement and vocal training.

– PARTNER MASSAGE - incorporate stretching and shiatsu techniques to increase joint flexibility and unlock energy blockages.

– HOW TO HARNESS the body’s movement potential in a daily exercise practice that supports and extends the life of all performance training as well as every day movement.
