Workshop leader Natalia Pieczuro, born in Wild East. Believes that reality is ultimately timeless and in the logic of the universe. Rooted herself with FM practice, studding anthropology of culture and in SEAD, where she graduated with a double diploma in choreography and performing. For last 10 years, she has been walking on Fighting Monkey path and this gave an axis to her teaching and life. As pedagogue she is motivated by an urge for movement - as consequence of being alive - and by endless will to share. Her teaching is totally based on FM practice and reaches dancers, actors, circus and sports people and all movers.

An open workshop serves as a basic platform for the Fighting Monkey Practice: it’s an overall introduction to the qualities and ideas that have been developed over the last 15 years of F.M. research. There are no restrictions or prerequisites, in terms of former experience and background. Groups usually consist of people from various fields and levels of skills but anyone can easily find their place to work and explore - anyone interested in human evolution.

You will experience mainly “movement situations” - irregular training methods to provoke and increase the adaptive value of your behavioral traits and strategic planning. We will work on complex and most of the time improvised structures to improve your movement qualities and increase your creative variability. We will help you to understand the underlying principles of human motion and how stress and pressure affects our perception, behavior and actions and how creatively adaptive you are in complex situations.

We will concentrate on strengthening and elaborating your partnering skills - other words speaking: your « communication skills ». Working with the partner will bring us the alive and so precious irregularity in the training; will influence our behavior, the diversity of qualities, tempo and rhythm of our movement.

Through partnering work - “movement situations”, coordinations, work with tools, injury prevention and body conditioning and « being », we will work on strengthening the focus, the awareness and the whole system

We will break the patterns, learn new patterns and try to find our wings. We will question how can one learn as much as he can and want? How can one be open to the "new" and still be well rooted?
