{ Advert: The Alexander Technique: the key to looking good }

The Alexander Technique enables us to do everything
effortlessly; standing, moving, sitting at our desks,
walking up stairs.  Even thinking and decision-making are
effortless.

When we stand well our stomachs look flatter.  And when we
do things the Alexander way we look good; it's an elegant,
youthful way of moving, with sparky eyes and a frown-free
face.  A recent article in "Ok!" magazine explained how
stars like Madonna, Hugh Jackman and Victoria Beckham use
the Alexander Technique to enhance their "star quality".
What could it do for you?

introductory session.

ART INTERVENTION & PERFORMANCE
Thursday 11 April
6.30pm at Old Operating Theatre, Museum and Herb Garret, 9a
St Thomas Street; 5 including glass of wine
Tectonic shifts in scientific thought and medical practice
during the 19th century fractured past conceptions of life.
Relations with God, nature and ourselves transformed.
Vectors of subjectification turned around a multiplicity of
events as the old world order collapsed under the pressure
of new technologies. Art and Science researcher Joey
O'Gorman PhD traces changing attitudes in medicine through
an intervention into the Old Operating Theatre Museum'
collections, relating to anaesthesia and asepsis. Hamish
Borno meanwhile will explore our perception of pain from a
contemporary point of view.
