    -Thinking Body-

    Inspired by book ,,The Thinking Body" M.E.Todd

     

     

    Today your body tells you a 350,000 year story.

    Knowledge about the body, movement is an opportunity to understand that story.

     

    "Thinking Body" is a process of searching and learning.

    Through studying the human body and its relation with the environment, we are looking for a better understanding

    of what is to be a human being,

    to be a Homo sapiens.

     

     

     

    ° From fish to human

    ° Form follows function

    ° If You fall, I catch. Gravity.

    ° What we can learn with closed eyes?

    ° Follow or lead ?

    ° Atlas and Axis friendship

    ° 1 2 3 4 limbs

    ° Me and the group (team work in animals behavior)

    ° My habit dance

    -Thinking Body-

    '' It's like to dance when no one sees it. When I was a child, I felt pleasure to move free. I felt the same pleasure in Thinking Body workshop.

    I revealed that for me is difficult to follow the leading while dancing with partner, although I was thinking I am easily adaptive person. Interesting things about ourselves we can experience through dance."

    Mantas Gancevičius (Furniture-maker)

    "It is important to understand how body works, how it affects the senses, how our feelings are communicating with body, how they condense in the body and complicate it, as our sorrows, disappointments turn into body cramps, as the feeling of love drops subjective kilograms from the body :) I was in the workshop about the evolution, spine. It seems we have researched only that part of my skeleton, but in my reflection I understood how my spine is related to my own inner axis, balance, with the ability to sustain all kinds of experiences and not to break, not to collapse. I liked it, and I got a psychological astonishment - perception. Such learning is really interesting and really about my body.,,

    Irena Voinič (Psychologist)

    "I like to learn about body and movement. I understand my body and movement better now. Workshop knowledge helped me in dancing and doing other physical activities. Workshop was authentic for me"
