“Earthquake Architecture” – open workshop

Which games do you play to stay young?

It is a seminar that serves as a basic platform for further study of the Fighting Monkey Research. We will give you an overall introduction to the qualities and ideas that we have developed over the last 15 years of our F.M. research. It is for dancers, movers, martial artists and people who are interested in human development.

The workshop combines the Open Workshop and Earthquake Architecture formats. It includes new materials, and is well-suited for both newcomers and people who have taken Fighting Monkey workshops in the past

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 improved 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 affect our perception, behavior and actions and how creatively adaptive you are in complex situations.

Foster improvisation, imagination and creativity.

The above are vital to problem solving.

Which is vital to adaptability, longevity and sustainability.

Play games.

Expose yourself to difficulties.

Fighting Monkey is a practical tool to improve your ability to deal with difficulty and the unknown. It is a practical tool for anyone seeking to broaden their movement horizons.
Our interest is to build an “EARTHQUAKE ARCHITECTURE”.
Architecture built to survive the stress must have the capacity and ability to interpret the energy, optimize its actions, keep creative plasticity, and elasticity to cultivate potential energy. We do this by designing ‘complex movement situations’ where you are expose to variety of learning methods that can help you to: Learn more efficiently and with longer lasting effects, improving your cognitive and behavioral flexibility and tolerance to unknown.

We observe and test movement abilities in a variety of contexts and conditions. To understand how intelligent, adaptive and creative you are in the moments that are not entirely in your control. Think of these ‘movement situations’ as a form of ‘movement vaccination’ – you deliberately expose yourself to a movement pathogen (stressor) to provoke the body to adapt.

This workshop is hosted as part of the community project Movement Research Israel, which aims to create an environment in which movers of all kinds (dance, yoga, contact, improv, martial arts, feldenkreiz, acrobats, physiotherapists, etc.) can practice and learn together. Join us:
