AUTHENTIC MOVEMENT

In AUTHENTIC MOVEMENT, we tap into an infinity of possibilities, where the ‘unknown’ is a place to be discovered through the body. In this practice we witness and we move without seeing, giving sense and meaning  n an empathic and non-judgmental way. Moving in couples of a blindfolded mover and an observer, we are creating a living experiment, that can show us new aspects about ourSelves and how to embody the very present moment – however that may look like. As we trust and give in to the flow of motion, intuitive exploration and spontaneous action can then build a bridge to the subconscious and show us hidden aspects of our true body.

AM has been developed in the 1950’s by Dance Therapist Amy Starks Whitehouse as “movement in depth” and  widely practiced in modern dance and movement- environments.
