30 May – 10 June, 2016 (10-day workshop, 4 hrs/day, weekend off)
Mon, Tues, Thurs 10.00 – 14.00 Wed & Fri 10.30 – 14.30

To register please send a mail to info@bettinaneuhaus.com
Deadline for registration (including full payment) is May 8, 2016

Specifically designed for those with a foundation in SRT and/or OSF, this intensive is a rare opportunity to deepen one’s practice through the more advanded material from the basic releasing work – week 2 & 3 – and to expand this into creative process. Each day will comprise a 2.5 hour releasing class, alternating daily betwen SRT and OSF, followed by a 75-minute integration of this material with improvisation, voice work, and writing and drawing practices.

In essence it is an advanced course: more an in-depth study than simply a series of classes. In order to begin an Open Source Forms Teacher Certification Program in Europe in 2017, we’re offering this workshop so enough people can complete the prerequisites for this rigorous & gratifying teacher training.

Of course if you’re not planning to do OSF Teacher Certification, you’re very welcome to join — & move deeper & farther on your path within this work.

Prerequisites for this workshop are having experienced at least a week of Open Source Forms or Skinner Releasing.

July 6 – 10, 2015: The Voice of the Creative Body – Open Source Forms & Action Theater™ with Susanna Hood & Sarah Bild, Montreal, CANADA

Susanna and Sarah share a curiosity about how Open Source Forms and Action Theater,™ as contrasting approaches, can complement each other in training embodied, deeply connected and playful performers.

Both of these improvisational techniques develop full human physicality, expanded beyond the movement of flesh and bones to include the movement of voice, imagination, thought and language, all riding on the music of the breath.

Through its focus on releasing and subtle states of consciousness, the Open Source Forms practice will bring participants in touch with their natural suppleness, readiness and presence. This is a richly embodied place from which to approach the more concrete and playful performance practice of Action Theater, which further develops skills and awareness of our moment to moment experience.

We encourage participation in both practices as each approach progresses cumulatively over the course of the week. All are welcome and classes will be offered in a bilingual setting.

Class schedule :
July 6 to 10, every morning
Open Source Forms with Susanna Hood : 9:30 to 11:00 am
Action Theater™ with Sarah Bild : 11:30 am to 1:00 pm

Full workshop : $150
One practice (OSF or AT) 5 days : $100

STUDIO LA POÊLE
5333 Casgrain, #307

Enrollment is limited.

April 27-30, 2015: Four-morning workshop in Toronto with Susanna Hood

Intensive series of 4 morning classes taught by Susanna Hood

April 27-30, 10am – 1pm

Dovercourt House, 805 Dovercourt Road, 1st floor, Toronto

Cost: $145 for the full workshop; $40 for one class

For information and to register, please send an email to somaticmovementlab@gmail.com and a deposit of $40 by April 13 to secure your spot.

Susanna offers Open Source Forms as the main container for an exploration into the moving, sounding, creative self guided by the philosophy that we are all natural movers and sounders with a vast capacity for expression, that movement and sound are both physical manifestations of our whole self, and that this combined physicality opens a doorway into experiencing our primordial being.

Within this container, Susanna also draws from her studies with such influential sources as OSF founder and master teacher, Stephanie Skura, master vocal teachers Fides Krucker and Richard Armstrong, Ruth Zaporah’s Action Theater, and Emilie Conrad’s Continuum Movement (along with Continuum practitioners Kim Brodey and Linda Rabin).

The classes will combine Open Source Forms material with some vocal work and some improvisation. The material from class to class is cumulative, so participants are encouraged to attend either all the classes or consecutive classes starting with the first class (some exceptions apply).
 
Classes are offered in a bilingual setting.
