The Axis Syllabus is a trans-disciplinary research platform, a myriad of lenses and an educational perspective in relation to human movement. Knowledge is assembled and experimented with from several fields of research including biomechanics, physics, anatomy, physiology, anthropology, neurosciences and an expansive collection of empirical knowledge.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Development of your own movement potential
Fine-tuning and improvement of coordination
Dynamic alignment studies: biomechanics from theory to practice
Neurophysiology applied to movement
Felt physics and anatomy in motion
Creative and situational strength training
Themes and propositions are met and interwoven with contact improvisation, dancing, meaningful movement puzzles, floor work, strength and coordination training and hands-on work.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Anyone looking for bridges between movement practice, theory and critical educational approach
Movement teachers, dance artists, athletes, therapists or body workers wanting to expand or reconfigure their movement/teaching/healing practice and analytic abilities
Movement Artisans are driven by an ongoing curiosity for movement research, the wonder of the human body and the art of transmission. Together, Kira Kirsch & Antoine Ragot bring many years of teaching through the lense of the Axis Syllabus. Their backgrounds in contemporary dance, Contact Improvisation, improvisation, sport science, pedagogy, hands-on intra-action and somatic communication build a rich palette of inquisitive material.
