Human Origami

A FREE class in movement improvisation inspired by bodily folding

with Glenna Batson, Movement Muse & Jude Casseday, Soundscape Artist

ADF Community Studios

Wednesday, December 6th, 12 noon to 2 pm

Human Origami is a somatic journey into folding – the folding of both body and sound.  Folding is basic to human embodiment, an archive of our biological development and a record of our life’s movement profile. This class will awaken a range of sensibilities to the dynamics of the folding body. Somatic muse Glenna will provide a loose structure of verbal prompts as entry into an immersive process of movement improvisation. Soundscape artist Jude will play several composed scores of folded sound inspired by her collaborations with Human Origami. The playing field of folding of both body and sound will boost your creativity and movement potential. We may also play with large sheets of newsprint, another powerful partner in the process.

The class is free and all movers are welcome. Voluntary love donations will be given to ADF to support the community studios.

Glenna Batson is an independent movement educator with nearly four decades of teaching experience in somatically informed movement education. At 69 years young, she remains inspired by many inroads to embodied knowledge – contemplative to expressive, artistic to scientific.
