Klein Technique focuses on moving from our deepest structural and energetic tissue, the bone, and the connections at the level of the bones. This is to improve movement and reduce and heal injuries. We will work on the muscles of deep postural support: the psoas, the hamstrings, the pelvic floor muscles, and the external rotators, with a body-felt understanding of how these muscles bring the bones into alignment, a place of connectedness, which leads to true power and efficiency of movement.
Klein Technique is a process-oriented practice of great value to people of all proficiency levels, dancers, and non-dancers alike. Our goal is to teach movement from the individual perspective of internal knowing and understanding. Students of all levels of practice in Klein Technique will gain insight into their movement patterns and habits and gain a greater internal understanding of their bodies. 
Alice Heyward is a dancer, choreographer, dramaturge and teacher from Australia living in Berlin. Her practice develops through diverse collaborations. Through movement-thought, she explores the production of embodied poetics. Her teaching of Klein Technique™ is grounded in an understanding of the body as an integral whole to maximise the individual’s unique movement potential. Artistic projects in 2023 include an exhibition by Adam Linder at MCA (Aus), dramaturgy for Lulu Obermayer’s ‘Lulu’ (Vienna) and touring works with Luisa Saraiva (Lisbon and Leuven) and Maria Hassabi (Bologna). In 2022, she created ‘Tributary’ at Klosterruine in Berlin, in collaboration with Maciek Sado and Oisín Monaghan, premiering and touring ‘Tirana’ with Luisa Saraiva as research partner and performer, ‘Cancelled’ with Maria Hassabi, and touring ‘Here’ with Hassabi. In 2020/21, she collaborated with Fanny Gicquel making ‘do you feel the same’, a performance installation in gallery and public space, and ‘Cry Carpet’ with Megan Payne and Jacqui Shelton and ‘Here’ with Hassabi. She is currently developing a new solo project exploring the figure of the banshee.
