The online interactive publication www.materialforthespine.com presents the technique developed by American dancer Steve Paxton through more than 4 hours of video content.
Price : € 25.00
Conceived by dancer Steve Paxton as both a meditation on the spine and a technical approach, Material for the Spine focuses on experience acquired along his artistic journey: his study on walking, his experience as a dancer, the development of Contact Improvisation and his Aïkido practice. This 4 hour long interactive publication online features the technique in its formal dimension and underlying thought process. Exercises and physical explorations are combined with lectures and documents of original performances, aiming to “ bring consciousness to the dark side of the body, its hidden aspect or its interior. ”
This is the technological adaptation of the DVD-ROM under the same name, published in 2008 by Contredanse Editions.
Interface and web development by Emeric Florence & Sébastien Vanvelthem.
