Teaching: Moveable Cinema/Dynamic Expansion

Class Description: Moveable CInema/Dynamic Expansion

Moveable Cinema is a movement practice created to expand the felt-sense and consciousness of vision while in movement. Shared though a series of mandalas (or practices) it enables one to find a unique path to research consciously how the expanded sense of vision can tune one into one’s body and acutely to the present. Beyond self-oriented practice, practices with others challenges and enriches subtle and powerful forms of witnessing. This becomes a vital and reliable tool for performance.
Moveable Cinema exists within the frame of Dynamic Expansion an integrated and somatic approach to orient to the Craniosacral System; tuning into it’s waves and stillness phenomena, grounds the practice.

Workshop Description: Dynamic Expansion

The dance practice Dynamic Expansion, created by Shannon Cooney dancer, choreographer and craniosacral practitioner, is based in connecting with the physical phenomenon of the Craniosacral (C/S) system with movement and dance via improvisational forms.
["The Craniosacral Rhythm, the tidal change in the fluids, moves the bones of the head and the sacrum, these natural changes in pressure cause motion to be felt through the whole body, with slight toning and relaxing, as these fluid pressures expand and relax." –Robert Harris RMT, C/S therapist/master teacher]
In the workshop participants are introduced to techniques to tune into this profound rhythm and go directly and deeply into this calm, dynamic, self-witnessing. The techniques taught incorporate natural, fully physical, energetic, and subtle dance/movements that are guided into improvisations. As the work evolves, one's capacity to remain wholly connected to this vital rhythm while expanding into varied dynamic states of presences is at the heart of the practice.
Dynamic Expansion offers many possible applications to one's personal artistic/creative work practice including: a vibrant palette/range of movement qualities, enhanced depth of focus, heightened and subtle states of presence, refined self-perception skills, new systems of connecting with others and, profound experiences in the sensorial field.
