Klein technique™ at Scenkonst Biennalen 2021

18 MAY, Tuesday – 21 MAY, Friday
AT 3 PM- 4:30 pm on Zoom
through Dansalliansen and Danscentrum Väst

Class description:
In Klein Technique™ we work from the body’s deepest, densest structure, the bones, and the muscles of postural support; the hamstrings, the psoas, the pelvic floor muscles, and the external rotators. When the bones become aligned and forces can move through us in relation to the floor/earth and space/heavens, we gain more strength and efficiency which can give us more possibilities and choices in our dancing as well as everyday movements.
During these classes we will work from a body felt understanding with our deepest structure, the bones and the muscles of deep postural support and its relation to stillness and movement. We will define and re-define some of the ideas and concepts specific to Klein Technique™ such as; connections, direction, initiation, thrust and counter-thrust, sequencing, balance, process and understanding. There will be time for practice as well as theory.

”Klein Technique™ is a process of discovery and rediscovery. It is ongoing and continual. It requires constant blending of theoretical information and experiential practice. It requires time. Like nature it is ordered and infinite in its discovery.” Susan T. Klein
