Lara Ostan
Being Bone

In this class, we will explore how we embody our skeletal system, and how it informs our dancing.

In the first part of the class we will focus on embodiment through touch, either in couples or on our own, spending time relating to each other’s bones through guided exercises, practicing giving and receiving touch. We will explore the process of how we imagine our bones to be and what anatomical sciences tell us about them.

In the second part we will bring our own embodiment of the bones into group compositions and dancing. Through simple improvisational and compositional frames, practicing performing and audiencing for each other. We will explore how we relate to different parameters in dancing through our bones, such as; rhythm and pace, placement in space, other bodies.

For this class you are very welcome to bring a yoga mat, or you can borrow one for free at KU.BE. Lara will provide visual and other learning tools.

The classes are held at KU.BE, Dirch Passers Allé 4, 2000 Frederiksberg in studio: Zen 1.

How to get there?
Zen 1 is located on third floor, please use the backstairs to access the studio.
Go in via the main entrance on first floor, keep going straight ahead towards the changing rooms next to the climbing area on the first floor, open the door in the far end and go up the stairs until you arrive on the third floor. Zen 1 is through the door on your right side.

Accessibility requires a little extra preparation. The studios are equipped for wheelchair users. It is possible to use the lift for access up to the 3rd floor. If you wish to use this, please let us know in advance, as the studio you have to go through via the lift is sometimes booked.
We kindly ask you to meet up 15 minutes prior to class, so there is time for “self check in” with your QR code on the ticket.
