Alexander George demonstrates a dive from his underwater training Shape and Space. Shape and Space consists of a beautiful and exciting repertoire of moves and an exploration of free flowing improvisation. It is a collection of dives arranged in a viable order, one that could be used outside of class time practice in a real session. In their construction, the dives embody a language with its own grammar and syntax. The key idea in Shape and Space is learning how to create pure, generous movement shapes that speak their embedded messages to the receiver while conveying her across the length and breadth of the pool. The movements of Shape and Space are rooted in human developmental movement; in the animal movement of dolphins, seals, sharks, snakes and whales; in elemental movement patterns seen in flowing water, and in archetypal templates that mirror our relation to spirit. The principle of chaos is honored in movements of a dynamic, arrhythmic, angular quality and also appears in formless free flow. In addition, Shape and Space explores the art of adaptation to and facilitation of the interactive receiver. Shape and Space is for those practitioners who believe in the healing power of movement and want to learn how to dance with their receivers in the water.
