Workshop with Francesca Pedulla – Trampoline included/ Games and instructions for bouncing. Through the lens of Axis Syllabus.
The bones and softer tissues collaborate to provide resilient tensegrity that allows us to break free of the earth’s gravitational field and experience the ephemeral joy of weightless flight.
In this workshop we will review timing and coordination, alignment and safety protocols for shock absorption and propulsion and we will discuss how we can turn gravitational forces to our favour.
The AXIS SYLLABUS is a human movement lexicon that interrelates information from anatomy, biomechanics and physics to universal movement principles.
Originally consolidated by Frey Faust, the AS has become a movement and research platform for the ASIRN (Axis Syllabus International Research Network). Hailing from diverse areas of expertise, ASIRN members are exploring the kinetic potential of the human body and developing functional movement patterns beyond esthetic criteria. They are physically applying, exploring and counterchecking the data gathered in the AS and also introducing new empirical/scientific data to the group, which keeps the AS evolving constantly.
In AS classes certified teachers are fostering collaborative and explorative learning situations and propose models for a joyful way of moving in accordance with our body structure and its physical context.
As a reference for locomotion, The Axis Syllabus reflects on how we might move and dance in a health-promoting and respectful manner - towards ourselves and others with whom we are sharing movement, time and space.
