AGILITY & ORIENTATION
This workshop’s main two topics are agility & orientation.
And we will work together on how to cultivate and explore different training scenarios orchestrated around the sub chapters of balance, coordination, endurance, speed, meditation, improvisation and partnering
While exploring these themes we will be drawing particular focus on ‘the relationship’ between learning and failure; Purposely inviting the exposure of failure in order to rediscover and recognize its function.
What we are interested in is to create an environment to build up an all-round adaptive mover. With this as an aim we suggest the idea of an investment into a practice composed of different forms of movement training in which to combine and create the foundation of ‘the Hybrid Mover’; alternatively described as someone who is capable of adapting themselves to a wide variety of dynamic cognitive and physical situations.
