Alice Heyward is a dancer, choreographer and teacher from Australia living in Berlin. Alice’s practice develops through diverse collaborations, as author, co-author and interpreter, constructing different situations for exchange and connection. Through movement-thought, she explores the production of embodied poetics. In 2023, Alice is developing a new project with Adam Linder at MCA (Aus) in 2023 and touring works with Luisa Saraiva and Maria Hassabi. In 2022, she created ‘Tributary’ at Klosterruine in Berlin, in collaboration with Maciek Sado and Oisín Monaghan, as well as premiering and touring ‘Tirana’ with Luisa Saraiva as research partner and performer, ‘Cancelled’ with Maria Hassabi, and touring ‘Here’ with Hassabi. In 2020 and 2021, she collaborated with artist Fanny Gicquel making ‘do you feel the same’, a performance installation in gallery and public space, and ‚Cry Carpet‘ with Megan Payne and Jacqui Shelton, presented in Naarm/Melbourne and created ‚Here‘ with Hassabi. Alice regularly teaches dance and movement practice in a variety of contexts.
In order to improve movement and reduce and heal injuries, Klein Technique™ focuses on moving from our deepest structural and energetic tissue, the bone, and the connections at the level of the bones. We will work on the muscles of deep postural support: the psoas, the hamstrings, the pelvic floor muscles, and the external rotators, with a body-felt understanding of how these muscles bring the bones into alignment, a place of connectedness, which leads to true power and efficiency of movement. Klein Technique™ is a process-oriented practice of great value to people of all proficiency levels, dancers, and non-dancers alike. Our goal is to teach movement from the individual perspective of internal knowing and understanding. Students of all levels of practice in Klein Technique™ will gain insight into their movement patterns and habits and gain a greater internal understanding of their bodies.
