ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This class is comprised of form and task-based exercises that examine and test physical and creative possibilities. These exercises ask the participant to continuously meet something outside of themselves – an object, form, concept, context – and observe, reflect, and integrate feedback through practice. Each task presents a rigorous framework to stimulate creativity, adaptability, awareness, power and softness.
Foundational elements from Fighting Monkey Practice will be offered, namely FM Zero Forms, FM Abstract Tools, and FM Coordinations. Elaborations based on Kraaijeveld’s research, improvisation and performance experience will be included.
Play, problem solving, and creativity will support examination of relationship between the individual and other objects and stresses in unpredictable environments. New pathways to learn, understand, and to define what is important will be prioritized, and each participant is expected to take responsibility for individual learning and work given this imperative.
