Integrating into our human form the actions and motions of our animal ancestors and the natural world. Workshop #2 14 May 2022 Elastic Roots In this workshop we explore the roots of our human architecture.

In this workshop, we investigate the role of the hands and arms in the evolution of the human body and how we shaped our world and ourselves by extending into space with reaching, pulling, pushing, gripping, throwing, catching and brachiation.
