Handstand Flow
Wake, move, sweat, play
with Emily Aoibheann

May 22nd - 12th June
8.45 - 945am
FRINGE LAB, Temple Bar

Handstand Flow exploratory handstand classes, Tuesday mornings in April at the very beautiful Fringe Lab studio in Temple Bar.

These classes are based on a Movement & Material approach, research I developed last year as part of a new methodology for aerial movement and performance. The investigations brought me both to the floor and to the equipment in new ways.

Handstand Flow classes cover strengthening, flexibility and technique specifically for handstands, but primarily they will involve practicing flow and adaptation, finding surfaces of support in the studio and with movement partners.

Suitable for those who are comfortable in plank/ high push up position.

About Emily Aoibheann

I am an artist, aerialist, experimental director of performance and other visual work, producer and educator. Although my expertise lies in circus and aerial, my varied background leads to a highly creative and original integration of multiple art and movement forms. In 2016, I received an Arts Council circus project award supporting self-directed research towards new methods of perceiving and producing aerial movement and performance. In extension, I presented a work in progress, Smiling Devil, at the Dublin Theatre, October 2017. I am director, owner and head trainer at Creation Aerial studio, Dublin.

About MMP: Movement, Material and Performance

‘Movement, Material and Performance’ is the title of a research project development throughout 2016/ 2017, developing a new methodology for aerial movement which draws on the unique relationship between circus and  industrial technology. My movement research draws on diverse practices including parkour, contemporary dance and martial arts. This project was funded by the Irish Arts Council. The written aspect of the research is being compiled for future publication.

I have presented this research in workshop form twice internationally in 2016, at the Silver Leap movement exchange forum in Berlin (July 2016) and at the Barcelona Rope Convention (August 2016). Elements of my research were used in the creation and implementation of an Anthropomorphic Structures workshop with first year Architecture students from Dublin Institute of Technology, in collaboration with lecturer and architect Dominic Stevens (2016/2017) and as part of Smiling Devil at Dublin Theatre Festival 2017.
