Creative Articulations Process Online Series

Jane and her long time collaborator and friend, Vida Midgelow, invite you to join us for monthly online classes in which to experience and practice the Creative Articulations Process (CAP). These sessions will focus upon the CAP ‘Ground Form’, inviting you into journeys of discovery within a containing framework. Somatic in nature and improvisational in approach, the ground form is suitable for anyone regardless of experience. Supporting the deepening of creative practice, the classes will elaborate the six facets of CAP – from opening to outwarding – developing your creative skills in attending, tracking and writing.

Passing through its simple and clear structure the Ground Form encourages different attentional and energetic qualities – inviting us to notice and explore that which is arising as we shift between moving and writing. It might be that materials, ideas or questions emerge, as we open ourselves gently and with curiosity to emerging possibilities, provide participants with the resources to use CAP in relation to their own work.

CAP has been developed by Jane Bacon and Vida Midgelow over a period of some twenty years in the Choreographic Lab and also prior to this as part of our teaching in Higher Education. We are committed to facilitating work that stays close to the body, and seek to bring to consciousness that which might otherwise be hidden or overlooked as physical, emotional, intuitive and perhaps even ineffable activities.

The online classes will be of interest to movement based practitioners that wish to deepen their work through processes of articulation and was developed as a method for undertaking Practice as Research. You may be a performance maker, somatic practitioner, artist-researcher, teacher or someone with a spiritual or psychological background with an interest in working creatively with and from our bodies. No prior experience of CAP is needed.
