Green, Debbie and O'Brien, Ita (2010) From Grounded Foot to Leaping Foot: Practice and Pedagogy Forum. In: From Grounded Foot to Leaping Foot: Practice and Pedagogy Forum, 26 October 2010, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

Abstract

A sharing and demonstration of research by Central School of Speech & Drama Senior Lecturer, Debbie Green, and Academy of Live and Recorded Arts Movement Tutor/Director, Ita O’Brien, into the development of the leaping foot from the grounded foot. The focus of their exploration is on the actor’s experience of being grounded to her/his experience of lightness through elevation from an anatomical awareness of the feet and the mechanism of leaping. They discuss various disciplines of movement that foreground working the feet and encourage a mindful approach to the use of the feet in a progressive practice.
