Off–Center Center / A–Symmetries mixed level Axis Syllabus intensive taught by Frey Faust.
The Center of Gravity migrates. Sometimes the Center is outside your body. The Center of the Body is (not) where you think it is.
Webbing, tubes, bags, braces and slippery half fused suits… interconnectedness, gravity and hydraulics… biological alignment is different than a straight line.
Moderation allows infinite choices for accent acceleration and vector, rather than restricting them. Asymmetry, the reason for twisting arcs and spirals, is the rule in the human body-plan and locomotive paradigm, but asymmetry can become symmetrical through repetition. Asymmetry can become symmetry when it is reflective, chronological, reverse and through simultaneous, alternating bi-lateral action.
These concepts express themselves in and out of contact with other dancers.
Let me show you what I mean…
see you soon!

Frey Faust is a 56-year-old veteran of the New York contemporary dance scene, with a strong European renommée and intercontinental touring circuit. His focus for the last twenty years has shifted to the educational value of applied science in the arts, with an emphasis on anatomy and physics, including aspects of sociology and cognitive science. He consolidated the interdisciplinary movement analysis and reference system called The Axis Syllabus (AS) in the late 1990’s.
