About the Fighting Monkey Workshop:
Improvised tasks and forms are employed to determine and stimulate those areas where mobility, coordination, and perception are limited or less integrated. Here the aim is to develop breadth of movement, creativity, and individual expression that can be applied across many contexts and disciplines.
Alanna’s classes are informed by her ongoing study of Fighting Monkey (FM). FM is an evolving movement practice centered on context-driven, collaborative practices that prioritize communication, intuition and whole-body coordination through play to accelerate skill development.
About Alana Kraaijeveld:
Alanna Kraaijeveld is a contemporary dance artist who has been active in the milieu for 15 years. She toured internationally with Dave St-Pierre, one of Canada’s most sought-after choreographers, in productions Un peu de tendresse bordel de merde and Foudres. From 2004-2008 she was a company dancer of Le Groupe Dance Lab, an international centre for choreographic research, under the direction of Order of Canada recipient Peter Boneham. Alanna is a close student of Linda Kapetanea and Jozef Frucek, developers of Fighting Monkey Practice.
Young Lungs Dance Exchange gratefully acknowledges the ongoing support of the Manitoba Arts Council, the Winnipeg Arts Council, and the Rachel Browne Theatre.
