Movement Practice: Authentic Movement with Jackie Latendresse (SASK)

YLDE invites all movers and thinkers to learn new skills, experience alternative pathways, and engage in dialogue at our free Movement Practice sessions. At every session a different guest is invited to share whatever is currently inspiring them about their movement practice, bringing their own unique knowledge, experience, and inquiry to the floor.

Using imagery and precise directives, the class will attempt to find authenticity through movement with a focus on communication. In order to find and develop authentic movement, we will push past our movement comfort zones into new methods of moving. We need to learn to recognise and when needed, discard old movement behaviours and patterns to make room for new ones. It is possible to discuss and describe complex ideas through movement in a clear way. Come with ideas for current or future work, newer choreographies and movement explorations. Bring a notebook.
