Open Source Forms (OSF) is a fluid expansion of the late American dance artist Joan Skinner’s Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT), developed by American dance artist, Stephanie Skura. Rooted in experiential learning, OSF is guided by the philosophy that the source of creativity and physical wisdom is available in each of us, and can be supportively accessed through the shedding of limiting holding patterns, connecting to energetic impulse, developing agility to navigate and integrate different states of consciousness, and through the use of imagery as a powerful tool for transformation. Sessions employ touch, deep-state imagery, and alignment/coordination-focused physical explorations. If we consider Open, Source, and Form as verbs instead of nouns, we can approach the class as an opportunity for opening; sourcing or resourcing; and un-forming to reform or to find new forms.
