Material for the Spine by Steve Paxton 

Material for the Spine takes as given, that the palette of the mover exists as sensations in the body.
Helix and other spinal rolls are forms that you learn from within.

Steve Paxton talk about Material for the Spine
As Steve Paxton says : “ I belive after 50 years of work, that it is healthy for the consciousness  to spend time with the body.

„The key to the information is, experiencing shapes. The design of the body has to be shaped from within.
In this 1 & a half year long program, the overall goal is to begin with & stay with a sensorial focus.
 And with that, to learn and to improve the shape of our helix , crescent & other spinal rolls over time.
The aim is to bring inner sensations to conciousness as we practice. Yet each time there will be within the learning time, space for open play/dance improvisation. So as to digest the tasted / learned material .

MFS is a meditative, technical study of spinal and pelvic movement potentials. 
In earlier years at studio Movity, 2023 & 2022, we had the great fortune to have Steve Paxton visiting in, on line, and teaching us, as part of our 4 day course. We will occasionally watch & hear his teachings collected on the Material for the spine DVD.
We will focus in each segment on a specific topic of Material for the spine.
As well as, revisit, practice and deepen in the sensations of the leg led and arm led helix rolls.

Nora Hajos
