Axis Syllabus Intensive Workshop

Relying on a situation adapted approach to the classroom context, we will assume that the direction of the class, its discussions, material content and specific practices will arise out of our meeting. The personal adaptation of given movement material is a physiological necessity, a fundamental aspect of creative expression and self-respect. Improvisational, experiential research usually forms the bulk of class time. Exemplary, repeating movement motifs are chosen as ritual contexts for dynamic meditation (embodied singing/chanting), the recognition and possible alteration of deleterious habit.

"Axis" is a reference to vector coordinates allowing the calculation of dimension, direction, inertial values and kinetic energy equations, and "Syllabus" means a list or lexicon, that organizes these references and correlates them with various kinds of documented practice. Having a non-specific cross-sector impact, The AS has met with an enthusiastic, international response from various performance oriented artists, as well as a wide cross-section of the scientific community. Twenty years ago, prompted by a convincing popular interest in this work, Frey founded the AS International Research Network, which has since developed an instructor's certification process with operational centers in seven countries and participants in development and study numbering in the thousands. To become an active member, register on our forum:

Frey Faust

Frey Faust is a 58 year old veteran of the New York contemporary dance scene, with a strong European renommée and intercontinental touring circuit. His focus for the last twenty two years has shifted to the educational value of applied science in the arts, with an emphasis on anatomy and physics, including aspects of sociology and cognitive science. With the help of colleagues from the arts and sciences, He began consolidating the interdisciplinary movement analysis and reference system called The Axis Syllabus (The AS) in the late 1990's.
