Embodied Anatomy — Wendy Smith & Martin Hughes

Embodied Anatomy and the Dancing Body

These classes continue from Wendy and Martin’s years of research on how embodied anatomy builds a dancing body. They will be investigating the deep physical logic embedded in the anatomical structures that support playing with weight, volume and buoyancy.

Wendy and Martin both have a background in contemporary dance and spent significant time in the USA training in their particular areas of interest. Wendy becoming Australia’s only qualified Skinner Releasing Technique® teacher and Martin developing a deep understanding and experience of Contact Improvisation; both having worked with the founders of their respective techniques. They met soon after returning to Australia in the early 90s and joined with others to form State of Flux Dance Company through which they taught, researched, and performed for 11 years. Both taught in the dance department of the Victorian College of the Arts for over two decades.
