Authentic Movement

Authentic movement (AM) is a movement practice, originally created by Marie Stark Whitehouse and developed by Janet Adler. I personally have studied with Linda Hatley.

AM in its ground form involves a mover tracking their inner world in the presence of a witness.

The witness is in dual attention both to mover and the self aiming to make a discernment between projection and affect in the relational field.

In my work as a Filmmaker, i am adopting the method of witnessing from AM, this means that i am in dual attention both to myself and the subject, paying attention to my potential projections.
