WHAT IS A PHYSICAL LISTENING LAB?
Each class focuses on a central inquiry and explores through somatic explorations, guided improvisation, journal writing, group brainstorming.
How can spatial intention improve my communication skills?
What does it mean to feel another person's energy?
How to find deeply integrated coordination?
How to jump start a creative process?
How can I avoid over-thinking?
Accessing deep play.
HOW IS A LAB DIFFERENT FROM A WORKSHOP?

Exploring Embodied Decision-Making though multiple mediums.
Sometimes embodied decision-making emerges through drawing
Here is an example:
We "pass" a simple line drawing around. Each person transforms the line drawing in their own way.
We then explore ways to translate this drawing exercise into a movement score.
Mover (A) creates a baseline phrase. Three movers learn that phrase, then work on their own to create variations in which one can still see/sense the baseline phrase. Movers A,B,C,D perform their phrases simultaneously, but intermittently sponge a g]fragment from their fellow movers. Continue until everyone is moving in unison.
