"Labo": weekly open session

Every week one or two group practices are organised based on the questions my practice partners/co-researchers and I ask ourselves.

Currently these sessions are held on Wednesdays at 5PM Sunday at 10AM.

We meet at Elite Athletes Training Facility (Griffinstraat 11, 2170 Merksem) and go to the park closeby and/or train inside depending on weather conditions.

Contact me through olivier.goetgeluck@eliteathletes.be or +32474244941 if you want to join.

The questions that drive the practice

Through the subjects above we try to research:

  • what are your patterns of inter-relation beween body, thought, emotions and memory

  • the physical and mental observable process of your ageing process, and in general to take preventative measures

  • observing your individual learning and coping mechanism in encountering new situations

  • movement practice as an approach for longevity and quality of life

  • missing links in training and development of performers: what are stressors involved in performance difference in training & competitive/work environment

  • what are holding/tension patterns of individual and how to make them observable and therefore changeable

  • potential of stillness exploration in society that is oversaturated with sensory information

  • what are links between eye movement, width of perception and memory

Background and inspiration

The process and structure of these sessions is deeply inspired by my teachers, and foremost Jozef Frucek and Linda Kapetanea of Fighting Monkey Research of which I am a close student and research collaborator.

My research is an extension of their ideas, finding my own connections, words and extensions.
