Stream Flow Method – Heidi Vierthaler

Datum: 20 - 24 jan 2020

Ort: Stockholm

A unique and constantly evolving tool for dancers using visual imagery and tactile exercises to help release the body and heighten awareness on many levels.

From simple ball imagery exploring inner and outer body, to delicate touch guidance, causing an array of dynamics, from extremely fragile to surprisingly powerful. Ideal for braking habitual movement patterns.

Heidi’s Stream-Flow method has been recognised as an effective somatic movement method that focuses on developing the individual. It has been featured in a recent publication for dans practices amongst dance institutions throughout Europe. Practicing Dance, A Somatic orientation.

Her inspiration for Stream Flow came from very different angles. It is the starting point for all of her teaching and choreographic work, and is integrated into both Contemporary and Ballet classes for professional dance companies and dance institutions.

Heidi’s interest lies in discovering a deeper knowledge of the body’s possibilities for the benefit of others and to continue developing her own distinctive movement language. Stream-Flow is an effective and creative approach to bridging different dance forms. The focus of the classes will be on integrating heightened inner and outer awareness as the foundation of endless initiations and physical organisations. We will work on separating the body into small sections from joint to joint and space to space. We’ll also work on movement phrases that will allow for surprising initiations, and a richer result with less effort and a rich pallet of dynamics.
