A4 4 – John Bolwell
An Introduction to the Staff
Working with a short staff, we will build a repertoire of skills and drills that will develop posture and poise as well as enhance both the flow and the focus within our movement.
Over the 4 days, this will be developed into (i) a short solo sequence and (ii) a partner routine.
The staff is sometimes referred to as the root of all weapons, a symbol of the traveller and pilgrim, heralds and messengers; a conduit between heaven & earth and yet readily available to even the humblest person.
The ideal length for this particular work is between 4′ and 5′.
If you have a staff, please bring it along; however, it will also be possible to borrow one for the week.
