Some research about human behaviour suggests that we are habitual beings that establish most patterns through repetition and environmental influence. Movement habits are formed in a similar manner. Our brain restructures areas depending on actions that we repeat over longer time. In order to develop other alternatives we need to raise our level of attention and slow down. This offers an opportunity to reconsider and restructure our habits. In this workshop I propose to use methods for working with attention and examine other ways of moving and dancing that are based on anatomical and mechanical research so that we can approach a more design dedicated coordination.
