Studio LaborGras Open Class with Arthur Stäldi

Open Class with LaborGras - Arthur

Monday - Friday 10:00 - 12:00

The Open Class with Arthur will focus on the following interests:
At first we will take time to release tension in muscles and joints to achieve a muscle efficiency which allows the body to become open, receptive and prepared for moving.

From there we will work on different tasks/movement concepts to develop a personal understanding on:
- how movement is sequencing through the body and from the body into space;
- how the dynamic of each movement creates already a potential for the next movemen;
All in all our interest is, to stimulate the element of curiosity as a creative force to allow experiences to happen while working on the proposed movement concepts/tasks and share does experiences by watching each other while doing, then share with each other the Information on what we see. Our aim is, to learn and grow from and with each other in a common context, space.
