"Your Inner Fish"

Evolutionary perspective on anatomical function, biomechanics and design of the body 365 millions years ago, a brave fish tried for the first time to hang out on land… And then what? The evolutionary perspective helps us track morphological function and critical mechanisms involved in locomotoric patterns and thus sheds a fascinating light on our pursuit of investigating the contemporary human moving body. The analysis, exploration and fine adjustment of efficient locomotion in the 3 dimensional world and infinite possibilities of level change, will be an essential aspect of this week end. This workshop aims to support the development of quotidian and athletic skills and is thought as a playful navigation between the modern world and our ancient heritage.

Antoine Ragot
Antoine was born in Poitiers, France and is now based in Berlin. Being an athlete throughout his first 20 years of life, his interest in the body manifested in two years of medical school which led to the university of sport sciences of which he graduated with a Bachelor degree specializing in education and motor skills. He then became involved in dance and different contact improvisation communities throughout France which brought him closer to unify his interests for the body, movement and performance. Today Antoine brings many years of teaching contact improvisation, sports and early motor development to his fastidious bent for research and sharing of the Axis Syllabus. Antoine is known for his enthusiasm and infecting others with the movement-research-geeksyndrome. Currently, his research is oriented towards paleoanthropology and functional morphology as well as the refinement and development of athletic skills via a friction between the Axis Syllabus research and problem-solving situations.

Movement mutations - Simple is complex

The question of how to move well or improve movement is one that many of us who are curious<br>about movement education ask ourselves. The many ways a movement can be done seem endless. My attention when moving or watching movement is often drawn to these huge numbers of choices that exist; the amount of options and variations for example in walking, rolling, running or jumping. Which choice is more logic or just? On what basis and how can we choose? I would like to invite you into an investigation that can help us in deepening our perspectives and understanding about how to choose a specific coordination for a specific context. Breaking down<br>movement patterns or motives will serve as examples for adding options to the ones we already have, appreciate complexity hidden inside simplicity and experience something known as something unknown. We will also consider external aspects like space, forces or individual physical differences that play a role when we learn or integrate movement. Information from anatomy and mechanics will support us in making informed decisions. I think that adding options and perceiving them as a multilayered universe that we understand partially only rather than limitations or contradiction can give us wealth and richness.

Baris Mihci
was born 1976 in Wuppertal, Germany and is currently based between Turkey and Europe. He graduated with degrees in social pedagogy, German language, Sports and special education for<br>physically disabled children at the University of Cologne. He completed his studies with a socialcultural research thesis referring to Pina Bausch's Tanztheater and its artistic research about human relationships. Baris then began his dancing life. His curiosity about the art of dancing was strongly influenced by following the work of Pina Bausch for over 14 years. Coming from an athletic background, movement was always a big interest to him. In 2001 he was introduced and immersed himself in the Axis Syllabus enabling. Baris acquired a teacher's certificate after 4 years and has been teaching regularly for dancers and non-dancers alike across Europe since. He has taught at Studio Hybrid, Dancetrumjette, Espace Catastrophe, the Nomadic College, DOCH, the Cullberg Ballet, Vaganova Academy, Tanzquartier among many other professional dance training institutions. Baris’ performance work is based in solo, site specific and improvisation. He has presented solos at Belgart Moment Festival, Festival tanzhautnah, RAC Festival (Brussels) among others. He has also collaborated extensively with Collectif en Transit, devoted to bringing dance to urban public spaces. Baris is a key organizer of the Nomadic College since 2004 and a member of the Axis Syllabus member assessment panel.
