As we go with the flow in practice, the rigidity we hold in our life is slowly dissolved away, making it easier for us to build relationships with others.Mimie Vararom Tavivoradilok – Project C community
Bangkok is bustling with opportunities to be creative and explore new, experimental forms of expression. One of the reasons for that is the presence of flourishing communities like Project C, which is part of Spine Party Movement.
Project C are back with with their latest, two-part, movement workshop “Sensing Through Skin” this Sunday at Dance Factory, Rachada Soi 7, 15:30-18:30. Following their successful Performance Party in March, where they wowed onlookers (myself included) with a dazzling display of somatic movement and contact improvisation, Project C are on a mission to spread the word.
Somatic movements are deliberate, conscious movements, performed for internal benefit as opposed to external. You feel the movements inside, and connect with your inner body. With enough practice, your body learns new movements and grows in strength and performance. The health benefits are thought to be far reaching.
This results in the body being moved into its unfamiliar zone, using different muscles, and blood streaming into parts that normally don’t get much blood circulation. The nervous system is strengthened as the whole system is thrown in to an unfamiliar situation.Mimie Vararon Taviroradilok – Project C community
Through these un-inhibited, playful movements, and through contact with other bodies, participants can explore new movements, which is very liberating. I witnessed this at the Project C Performance Party showcase in March, for the first time, and it was clearly a profound and meaningful experience for the performers. There are no fast, explosive movements, everything is performed with intense awareness.
Project C, one branch of Spine Party Movement, hosts contact improvisation workshops every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month and through these meet-ups, they will foster self-development, creativity, somatic practice and an inclusive, multi-cultural community made up of people from all walks of life.
