July 6 – 24, 2020: OSF Summer Workshop in Seattle with Stephanie Skura & Co-Faculty

“Some of the best teaching & guidance I’ve ever received in my dancing/movement life! Don’t miss it.”  Jeremy Steward, 2017 Certified OSF teacher 

OPEN TO ALL, NO PRIOR OSF EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
Options for two or three weeks, beginning with Week #1.

July 6 – 24, 2020
10:30 AM – 1:30 PM, Mon – Fri
19th & Roy, Capitol Hill, Seattle

 Opportunity to study intensively with OSF creator Stephanie Skura & Co-Faculty Susanna Hood & Nate Dryden, assisted by Keely Isaak Meehan

 Open to all! Daily 3-hour sessions. No prior experience necessary. Participants need to begin on first day, & participate daily. Drop-in’s OK with significant prior experience with OSF or Skinner Releasing Technique.

** Partially fulfills requirements for applicants to OSF Teacher Certification Program.**

Workshop participants will join Sourcing Deeper OSF participants for morning OSF technique sessions, bringing together a worldwide community for dancing, creative practice, and deep immersion — in a catalytic environment of colleagues with diverse experiences in teaching, healing, therapy, performance, theater, community, and visionary organization-building.

Deeply rooted in & fluidly expanded from Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT), OSF involves shedding outer layers, accessing primal energy, agility navigating subconscious realms, imagery as potent tool for transformation, & developing a high degree of consciousness without self-consciousness. This work celebrates diversity, collaboration & individual empowerment: free of inhibition, accessing intuition, inviting the mind to collaborate. OSF sessions offer potent tools to access freedom, specificity & courage in movement, vocal practice & creative practice. A key aspect is individual creative empowerment as an instigator of positive change on the planet.

September 10-12, 2018 – Open Source Forms & Creative Play with Susanna Hood

September 10, 11, 12, 2018

10am-1pm

Dovercourt  House 3rd Floor, Toronto, ON

$80 for all 3 classes ($30/class)

Drop-ins welcome for day 1 and exceptionally for other days depending on previous experience

To Register: meryem.muginov@gmail.com

Minimum $30 deposit required on registration

In this three-morning workshop, Susanna offers introductory level OSF material in combination with improvisation structures using movement, voice, drawing, and writing.  OSF, founded by dance artist and master teacher Stephanie Skura in 2008 is a fluid expansion of Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT), developed as a revolutionary way of learning by Joan Skinner in the 1960’s. Some basic principals underpinning the work are: that we are all born with natural grace and coordination with free and open voices & natural creativity; that in letting go of learned patterns of holding, of preconception, and of expectation we can connect to our own inherent process and potential; that sound is an expression of and release of energy; that learning through allowing instead of forcing gives us access to fullness with less effort; that we can be physically touched and transformed by the use of imagery; that play is a fundamental part of our humanness. (To learn more about OSF and SRT please visit https://opensourceforms.com and http://www.skinnerreleasing.com/aboutsrt.html).

The nature of the working process is web-like, cumulative and will happen in layers with no two days exactly the same. This is why the sessions are best experienced in their entirety. We will work with touch, deep-state imagery, and waking-state exercises and scores for improvisation. The sessions are guided mostly through experiential learning, allowing for the timing of each individual’s process of discovery and integration, working both together and alone but in community.

The class is open to adults of all ages, performers and non-performers alike. The class will cater to the average level of its participants’ previous experience with OSF/SRT.

Susanna Hood Biography:

Susanna Hood is a compelling performer, maker and teacher in dance and music and was the artistic director of hum dansoundart (https://humdansoundart.wordpress.com/company/) from 2000-2013. Beginning her career in 1991 with the Toronto Dance Theatre, independently she has performed the works of many Canadian choreographers, composers, and filmmakers. She performs widely as an improviser in dance and music, and has collaborated extensively in theatre as a movement director.  Her choreography, compositions, and interdisciplinary collaborations have been presented locally, nationally, and internationally on stage and film since 1991. Her work is marked by a dynamic synthesis of voice and movement, creating intimate, raw and sensual performance work.

From 2015-2017 Susanna completed the Pilot #2 of the Research Studios at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels, Belgium with emphasis on the synergistic relations between dance and music. Since 2004, Susanna has been teaching improvisation, composition, and voice and movement synthesis in various institutions and through independent workshops across Canada. Since 2012 Susanna has become a teacher trainer of Open Source Forms (OSF), a practice that combines the principles of Skinner Releasing method with the varied and developing practices of its teachers. . http://susannahood.ca
