Psycho-physical performer training exercise.
This is a 3-part exercise, and this is part 1.

**REMEMBER: THIS IS TRAINING. IT’s NOT MEANT TO BE PRETTY!

Purpose: To energize the body via frenetic moving arms and center, juxtaposed with a strong legs and connection to ground; to cultivate energy; to eliminate the ‘ego’ (thinking part of the mind) so it is ready for part 2, which is a feeling exercise.

Music: Radiohead “Myxomatosis”
** these exercises are physically intense. Adjust as needed for personal physical needs.

Instructions:
Feet wider than shoulder width (you will want to squeeze your butt and your leg muscles to maintain balance and a steady center).

FIRST VERSE: When music starts – frenetic moving arms. Arms must stay straight. Don’t go behind your shoulders (out of your own peripheral vision). Don’t repeat patterns!

Pause on music pauses. FEEL arms and energy. PROJECT energy.

CHORUS: “I don’t know what I feel” – small standing statues: move the center quickly and then be still on beat in music. Don’t move feet!

SECOND VERSE: wherever you land on the last statue, thats where you’ll start agitekkaten (moving arms) again (you’re going to start to get tired. Keep going!)
“I stand in the cupboard” – standing statues but more frenetically. move the center of your body, and challenge yourself to be thrown off center but don’t! the work is in staying on the spot. (Yes, it’s hard!)

“it got edited…” back to arms.

“used as a photo in Time Magazine” – back to center moving.

CHORUS: statues

THIRD VERSE: Moving center and take it to the ground (imagine a sting attached through just below your belly and you’re being pulled by it all over the place. NB: it’s not meant to be pretty!).

“no one likes a smart arse..” where ever you are: arms on the ground

“it must have got mixed up” – center again

VERSE: statues on ground

END OF SONG: Free form! Arms, center. Go for it!!!

END: on ground.
