Conscious Reduction is a response to the saturation of information and influences availed upon us, not only as dancers but also as people. It is not a technique, but more an approach. It is a manner of of thinking that enables one to declutter, to rationalise and channel information, both physical and imaginary in order to be highly aware and mindfully free.
In place of a set class, the system uses is a system of structured, progressive movement exercises and guided improvisation that allow the dancer to both understand the concept and practice it’s application.
A session can serve as both a a professional warm up as well as permitting experimentation with movement generation and personalisation.
The pretence of the system is not to present one unique way of movement but rather to create a state of readiness in the mind, by cultivating.
