It focuses on deep myo fascial release through visualization meditation and verbal dialoging aiming to guide participants towards a so called Full Drop into the body. Developing heightened inner listening and awareness of the multiple autonomous systems and rhythms of the body and how to able to be guided and moved by them and experience the various altered physical states that accommodate this type listening. By fully dropping into the body and entering a meditative space where time ceases to exist, conditions have been created to release self-manipulation and control and allow active intentions to empty out. Through new subjective sensorial experiences unravelling, what was formerly unconscious becomes conscious, increasing awareness of the current as well as immanent inner states of each person. While the practice itself is gentle the decision to let go of control and enter into the unknown, not yet discovered and subconscious parts of yourself is profound.
Working with and sharing a practice of de-conditioning which is in itself directly healing and holistic is a conscious political gesture. It was developed whilst creating a body of artistic works that address the mental, emotional and physical states of the citizens living within the current social political environment, and how that reality expresses itself in our matter. Combining ten years of research within the artistic field of dance and study of the Perceptive Pedagogy method of french osteopath Danis Bois. A unique practice and approach to body work within the field of dance has been developed and is there to be shared.
Workshops on the Full Drop practice has taken place in the following places: MA program in choreography at the Theater Academy of the Uniarts in Helsinki, BA dance program at DOCH in Stockholm, BA choreography program of the Academy National di Danza in Rome, The Icelandic Dance company, Cullberg Ballet dance company in Stockholm, Professional dancers training and workshop program at both Dansalliansen and Dance Centrum in Stockholm, Dansehallerne Copenhagen, Zodiak dance centre and theater in Helsinki,, BA dance program of the University of Arts in Iceland, Praxis Festival in Oslo, Aaden Dans in Roskilde Denmark, Norberg Festival Sweden, Kiezkieken- workshops for refugee women and children in Berlin. As well as at various academic conferences around Europe, within the field of dance, artistic research, performance studies and philosophy, and in relation to her performance work.
