Tool training with Dance Exchange (DX) Company member Shula Strassfeld. She spent two hours working with Anne  Kotleba and I working through DX Tool Box activities. She focused on one called “Detail: a tool which focuses on drawing movement ideas from concrete physical evidence by observing the immediate environment and by conjuring details of a scene from memory and imagination. Rather than a fixed procedure, Detail is a set of practices for observing, imagining, discerning, and organizing information that can be a rich source for movement.”
Shula led us through a series on movement improvs and visualizations to create solo material and material that we fused together. I really enjoyed dancing with Anne! As we have begun to co-facilitate at Dr. Rayner Browne we are developing and sharing some great activities together and this training strengthened this relationship for sure!!
