Axis Syllabus intensive workshop with Frey Faust will take place from October 27 till 29 in the beautiful surroundings of the Asvejos National Park 7o km from Vilnius. The registration for the workshop is already open and early birds pay less! If they are early enough not to miss the moment until there are no more places left. Workshop full price is 340 EUR; early bird (until 25th of August) pays 290 EUR. Registration takes place here.
Detailed information about the workshop can be found on http://axissyllabusintensivewithfreyfaust.weebly.com/
In short about the workshop:
What we will be exploring and learning?
Material from the Axis Syllabus, human movement lexicon.
What will I learn?
0 to 20% anatomical theory;
0 to 20% applied physics;
0 to 80% task oriented improvisation;
0 to 80% rhythmic movement patterns;
60% to 100% movement study;
10% to 90% chance that none of these percentages will be the same as predicted.
How can I use it or apply it?
In art and in life.
About Axis Syllabus
Axis Syllabus (AS) is a movement analysis system. Although the system has some unique anatomical perspectives or theories, it refers to current medical protocols for healthy movement ranges and uses basic physics to predict stress factors and evaluate energy conservation strategies. The AS is compiled through a collective process by experts in a wide range of activities, and the sophistication and practical application of anatomical and physical information make the AS a singular and extremely useful diagnostic tool for any rehab, re-education, or training process.
The AS is a diagnostic tool, not a dance method or style. A strictly technical approach to dancing and moving that provides practical solutions for basic coordination problems. The AS reveals itself as profoundly transformative, empowering and artistically inspiring, precisely because there is a concerted effort to allow the individual to come to their own conclusions, to embrace or reject the proposals, to give space for their own creativity.

About Frey Faust (DE/US)
Born in 1960, Frey Faust began performing at the age of 8 with his family as a traveling troubadour. He is a second generation contact improviser and an alumnus of the 80´s New York dance scene. Some of his more important early influences came from: Shekhinah Mountainwater, Nita Little, Pavel Rouba, Rene Bazinet, and Janet Panetta. He has worked with and for a number of artists (order of appearance: Ohad Naharin, Donald Byrd, David Parsons, Gina Buntz, Howard Katz, Merce Cunningham, Meredith Monk, Randy Warshaw, Bob Een, Stephen Petronio, Danny Ezralow… to name a few. He founded or co-founded three dance companies, and has created or co-created over 40 choreographic solo and group works. Following an independent study of anatomy, biomechanics, and physics, he has been able to build a pedagogical approach that has made him a sought after teacher, personal coach and technical counselor. After fifteen years of research, he consolidated his findings in a book, ‘The Axis Syllabus – human movement lexicon’, which he continues to edit with the help of the Axis Syllabus International Research Community. Founded in 2009, the ASIRC is a rapidly expanding group of experts from many related fields in the human movement and education sciences. Recently, his work on the AS has been focused into the construction of a symbol set with the potential to streamline movement documentation and analysis. He also makes shoes, speaks 4 languages, continues to create and perform dances.
