Alexander Technique Lab for Choreographers @ Base

  • Base: Experimental Arts + Space 6520 5th Avenue South #122 Seattle, WA 98108 USA (map)

Join Seattle’s Crispin Spaeth in an exploration of the Alexander Technique to support creative intention and pleasure in choreographic process and everyday movement.

The Alexander Technique (AT) is a learning process that offers a way to access your natural coordination so that you can move, think, and communicate more freely. Crispin has used AT throughout her choreographic career to support the physical and creative aspects of her work, and continues to use it every day. It is a remarkably simple, practical process with broad applications — choreography, public speaking, work, laundry... you name it!

This workshop is for choreographers with an emphasis on how to use AT in the thinking, movement, and communication that are all part of making dances. We will look at directing dancers in the creation and performance of material, as well as how to put AT into practice for your own creative process.

We will start with an introduction to the Alexander Technique followed by experiments in movement, both plain and fancy. Learn how to use AT to give you tools for increased movement exploration, expression, and fun. This will be a collaborative workshop, so expect to do some dancing in each other’s experiments.
