What exactly is somatics? How does the Feldenkrais Method ® work? And what do they have to do with life and art? In this lecture, Malcolm will explore these questions by taking the perception of differences as a central theme. Delivered in his own amusing and thought provoking style, he will thread together a tapestry of theory, anecdotes, demonstrations and experiments that invite (optional) participation, before opening up to questions from the audience.

“I am a somatic movement researcher, educator and performing artist. Movement is life and just about any situation can be analysed in terms of what moves, how, where, when and with what quality. I am fascinated by how people move and by how I move, both alone and in relation to others.


I have been based in Finland for the last eight years where I am currently a part-time senior lecturer in the dance department of the Theatre Academy of Finland (Finland's highest level dance education). I have helped to develop the one-year Dance And Somatics education in Joensuu where I teach around two months a year. I also tour Europe teaching at various venues and festivals.” [Malcolm Manning (GB/FIN)]
