Pre-course: CREATIVE MOVEMENT-METHOD GARCIA-PLEVIN

Maria Elena Garcia

9,10,11 february 2018

Beijing 

Creative Movement is a discipline which develops creativity through movement, by  teaching how to awaken, be present and listen deeply to what the body has to say.

The seminar proposes different ways to explore creativity through ones’ own body movement. Today discoveries of neuroscientists confirm that consciousness, intelligence and creativity are rooted in the experience of the body.

Creativity emerges when we find a way to externalise what we may be experiencing internally, finding one’s true self.  Moreover, the capacity to express ourselves more authentically nourishes our emotional intelligence  and innovative thinking.  This teaching, will, as well,  offer elements on how to better one’s quality of life, improve relationships,  reduce stress and increase vitality.

The seminar is mainly practical: through movement we will understand the mind.  Themes we will be working with are:

  • How to listen to the body, to recognise the necessary attention to be receptive to  inner impulses for movement,
  • How to let go to move freely and spontaneously,
  • How to be stimulated by rhythm and  music,
  • How to be stimulated by images and the imagination,
  • How to be stimulated by objects, material, color and design,
  • How to create in relationship with others.

Every experience will be completed by a theoretical reflection with practical indications of the possibility to adapt this work for different ages, for different types of groups.

For who: 

EDUCATORS: To use one’s own knowledge gained in this seminar about creativity  to find different proposals  to adapt of one’s students.

Creative Arts education tEachers: To find new inspiration for teaching music, dance Art, drama

THERAPISTS    To recognise that being consciouses of the importance of the body can improve relationship with patients.

MANAGERS :  Can find ways to better and improve creative initiatives in their own work as well as finding ways  encourage others towards creativity and to particularly lower stress levels.

All Others hat would like to find  experiment and find greater liberty in their ways of expression.
