SHELLEY SENTER [USA]
ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE

November 2 – 6, 2020 | 10 am – 12 pm

Shelley Senter is an independent dance artist whose work has been presented throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia, Russia and Australia. She has been critically recognized and awarded for her distinct approach to movement, performance and pedagogy, collaborating with many distinguished artists, such as Trisha Brown, Deborah Hay, Bebe Miller and Lower Left Performance Collective. Senter is a repetiteur of the seminal choreography of Brown and Yvonne Rainer, and has been presented as a “living archive” of their work and others’ in autobiographical performance-lectures in such venues as MoMA, the Tate Modern, Berliner Festival and at the US Embassy in Vienna, where she was honored by the Impulstanz International Dance Festival. A teacher of the Alexander Technique, her work is informed by her experience investigating the principles of this technique to the performing body and mind. She teaches AT privately and in groups around the globe and is currently on faculty at Movement Research, the Trisha Brown Dance Company, La Biennale di Venezia and Sarah Lawrence College.

ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE 

The Alexander Technique is a practice of moving and perceiving consciously rather than habitually. It is a means of identifying unconscious patterns that can interfere with our ability to make choices and to attend to the moment, as well as to our selves and others. Beginning with the proposition that we are perfectly designed for movement and balance, we engage our awareness to trust this design and legacy as well as to undo and unlearn layers of interference, creating opportunity for understanding how we use (or misuse) ourselves, for mining our un/sub/conscious and for promoting self-reflection and a profound self-knowledge that is deeply helpful for the artist. The Alexander Technique is used by thinkers, movers and artists of all disciplines.
