“The most inspiring teacher of movement-based creative process I know.” Alex Crowe, UK Teacher/Choreographer

Fluidly expanded from Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT), Skura developed Open Source Forms (OSF) after 12 years as SRT’s core faculty, & decades of radical performance practice. OSF is about cross-fertilizations and deep commonalities of SRT & creative process: shedding outer layers, finding primal energy, agility navigating subconscious realms, & imagery as powerful tool for transformation. Drawing on her innovative research in improvisation & composition, Skura’s teaching derives from a process that supports diversity, collaboration, & individual empowerment.
