Klein Technique Workshop

For the final event in our current project, womb to web (human/nonhuman entanglements #2), artist Barbara Gamper have invited Antonio de la Fe to lead a workshop and teach a Klein Technique™ Stretch and Placement class.

After exploring the fluid systems of the body in a previous workshop with Katy Dymoke in Body Mind Centring, we will now move on to explore the skeletal system. The purpose of Klein Technique™ is education, not on the superficial level of mimicking form, but on a profoundly deep level of understanding the full use of the body as an integral whole to maximize full function of each individuals unique movement potential.

Participants for this workshop don't need to have any prior knowledge of the technique or other movement techniques but we do ask that you please wear comfortable clothing. The workshop is free but please confirm your interest at as spaces are limited. This is an off-site event and will take place at SYRACUSAE, 134 Liverpool Road, Islington, London N1 1LA.

This project forms part of a series of collaborative acts where KELDER will work with artists, curators, educators, institutions and writers to take the role of guest curator in order to realise a collaborative project.

Our first guest curator is the artist, Ingrid Berthon-Moine who works across sculpture, photography and installation. She addresses concerns around the representation of gender relations and gender narratives through her practice.
Barbara Gamper’s practice lies at the intersection of somatic bodywork, performance, moving image and textiles. The body holds a central role in her process of making. Gamper is interested in its archival layers of experience, emotion and sensation – the inert knowledge inscribed at the level of bones and muscles – and in the process of connecting and unearthing these. She graduated in 2016 with an MFA from Goldsmiths, University of London. Recent exhibitions include ‘Run the World (girls)’, Galleria Doris Ghetta, Pontives (2019); ‘At the level of the bone’, Chalton Gallery (2018); ‘Cellular Breathing (toward fluid bodies and autotelic experience’, Galerie Andreas Schmidt, Berlin (2018) and ‘We Move in Her Way’ by Sonia Boyce, ICA, London (2016).
