Through the Weightlessness practice, one plays with gravity’s effect on both movement and musical qualities. The ranges of texture, speed, density, length, force and resistance are all prone to grow and change through the development of this exploration. We often begin on the floor, gradually rising to standing where the notion of weightlessness becomes clearer. Eventually, the use of alternating postural orientations and movements that cover more space at changing speeds and dynamics can be explored. This will make sense through working with a partner. Each workshop is unique as the content takes shape through the interaction and engagement with each other. When we find our way to let go of expectations the path to truly meet one self becomes clearer. Where there is no one to impress and there is nothing to hide. There. We start.

Almog Loven is a professional dancer, teacher and therapist from Israel. He holds a degree in Psychology and Humanities from The Hebrew University Of Jerusalem where he focused on the study of Chronic Pain and Psychological Flexibility. Loven is currently the European ambassador of the Ilan Lev Method, alongside giving Weightlessness seminars around the world. His practice is influenced by his study of Tai Chi, Axis Syllabus, the Release technique and principles offered by Moshe Feldenkrais.
