Mapping the Self – for dancers and movement artists

Led by Alexander Technique Practitioner, Cori Olinghouse

Mapping the Self is intended for experienced dancers and movement artists looking to create depth within their solo practices.  Designed as a laboratory, this six-week series introduces tools from the Alexander Technique and Improvisational forms that inspire embodiment, creativity, and self-sufficiency.  This approach synthesizes technical and creative practices in a vital feedback loop, where learning is deepened through creative application and creative articulation deepened through technique. Influenced by Olinghouse’s 20 year investigation of the Alexander Technique, along with Laban Movement Analysis, Emergent Improvisation, Bartenieff Fundamentals, BMC and research from her own creative practice, she will lead participants through a shape-shifting terrain, offering multiple points of entry into one’s own embodied practices.

Taught previously at the Trisha Brown Dance Company in Manhattan, The Yard in Martha’s Vineyard,  Movement Research in Manhattan and Ohio State University, among others.
