MICROBATICS & AGILITY
Having constructed and deconstructed my acrobatic training over the past 10 years, we will explore specific ongoing thoughts and ideas on how to approach acrobatically based movement training. As the foundation of the practice has its roots based within acrobatics it will be a present topic, however we will be working on many different topics so come prepared with an open mind.
We will be looking at an ongoing research and vocabulary into acro dance and agility-based movement situations, with the attempt to expand our understanding and sensitivity while interacting within the proposed domain of movement training.
Using ideas revolving around agility we will work on balance, coordination, endurance, speed and strength (BCESS system) to see how this can be cultivated into both solo practice and partnering situations with the idea to build up a well rounded and adaptive mover.
There will be specific work on building and cultivating our proprioceptive blind spots within our physiology to see how we can develop a sustainable practice.
Winston is also a member of the Ferus Animi // Terra Nova Collective, a group of cross
disciplinary craftspersons researching in the fields of human physiology and performance, through both an artistic and scientific lens.
Winston Reynolds graduated from Circomedia, specialising in acrobatics & physical theatre
(FDA, 2010-2012). And later went on to complete his Bachelor at ACAPA (Academy of Circus
and Performance Art,Netherlands, 2012-2016). Within his research he specialised in acrobatic
dance, a hybrid mix containing elements from gymnastics, capoeira, breakdancing,
improvisation and animal locomotion, as well as undergoing several years of research around
acrobatic contact partnering.
Winston’s personal practice is informed by an ongoing study and research with Alexander
Vantournhout, Martin Kilvady, Joseph Bartz and Alexis Simons.
A big part of his development has been a long term collaboration with Axel Guérin researching
Acrobatics in Dance and Performance.
Artistically his main engagement has been with Alexander Vantournhout / Not Standing in the
performance ‘Red Haired Men’. touring from 2021 onwards.
Winston is also part of Ferus Animi // Terra Nova which is a movement research collective
based in Europe. With the aim to share the most up-to-date research from a host of scientific
and artistic disciplines, including neuroscience, evolutionary physiology, biomechanics and philosophy, in a relevant and accessible way, to
enrich the practices of their students and collaborators.
In 2017 Winston formed the company Yeknom which develops and shares an ongoing research into movement exploration and content
creation with a particular interest in the process of physical and cognitive development within movement and learning.
Yeknom currently leads movement and research workshops throughout Europe.
