Soft Tubes with a group of 6 women practitioners.

Soft Tubes with Jeanne Jensen and Karoline H Larsen

Soft Tubes is a collaboration between Jeanne Jensen, Advanced Rolfer and Continuum Movement teacher and performance artist Karoline H Larsen. Soft Tubes is recorded in a former Carlsberg warehouse in Copenhagen in March 2013.

In the Soft Tube video 6 women participate, whom I have practiced with at Jeanne’s Facial Flow, courses since 2006. We met in the former straw storage house and pulled on the Soft Tubes. Jeanne introduced to us to create our movements as if it is coming from the connective tissue, unlike a muscular movement, and we could draw on our many years of experience from the courses when we were exploring the Soft Tubes.

The whole body is covered with Soft Tube forming a new kind of ‘skin’ or extra membrane to the world that one senses through. As information via sight is no longer the primary source, because the Soft Tubes gives visibility in close range only, then other senses of the body is activated.

Similar tubes are used in body treatment with preterm children, children with ADHD and other persons where a regulation of the nervous system and stress levels in the body is essential training for a well-being.

Soft Tubes are sown by Toni’s Dresses after inspiration from one of Jeanne Jensen’s body therapist colleagues in the United States. Thank you.

Soft Tubes er et samarbejde imellem Jeanne Jensen, Advanced Rolfter og Continuum Movement teacher og billedkunstner Karoline H Larsen. Soft Tubes er optaget i Halmlageret i København i marts 20013.

I Soft Tubes video er 6 medvirkende kvinder, som jeg har praktiseret med på Jeanne’s Fascial Flow kurser siden 2006. Vi mødtes i Halmlageret og trak i Soft Tubes. Jeanne introducerede at vi kunne tænke vores bevægelser som et bindevæv, til forskel fra en muskulær bevægelse, og trække på vores erfaring fra kurserne.

Hele kroppen er dækket af Soft Tube, som danner en ny form for ‘hud’ eller ekstra membran til verden, som man sanser igennem. Idet orientering via synet ikke længere er det primære, fordi stoffet kun giver sigtbarhed tæt på, når man har Soft Tubes på, så bliver kroppens øvrige sanseapparat aktiveret.

Soft Tubes er syet af Toni efter inspireret fra en af Jeanne Jensen’s kropsbehandler-kolleger i USA.

Lignende tubes anvendes i kropsbehandling med for tidligt fødte, børn med ADHD, og andre personer hvor en regulering af nervesystemet og stressniveau i kroppen er afgørende træning for et velbefindende.
