The COS Technique can also be of great help for dancers, actors,
performers of ant kind, visual artist, computer artists, musicians,
singers, athletes, and basically anyone who wishes to have a deeper and
more complete knowledge of the self as one body and mind.

Goals: - finding the inner-outer strength: knowing where it comes from,
how to produce it, how to share it, how it make it productive.

- awareness of the body's potentials and how to enlarge them: through
strength / stamina / flexibility exercises linked to and dependent on
our breathing.

- use of our breath as source of strength, relaxation, healing and
overall as a body stimulator which is the key for a full self
potential; the key for concentration.

- listening to the body: trusting the body, knowing when to act /
react actively , or when to just observe its state seeing what it has
to say; experiencing the body from inside to outside and from outside
to inside and finding the balance.

- the whole body moving constantly: knowledge of the permanent body
activity; awareness and use of our organs and their functions, the
blood, the lymphatic system, the nerves, the glands, as much as the
bones, muscles, tendons and articulations; all explorations of body
activities through physical experience.

- discovering the voices: working with the voices from inside and
outside the body; finding their relationships with breath and energy;
learning to use them as energy potential.

- recalling the body memory: discovering what our mind has forgotten
but our body may still remember if motivated; finding a new sense of
being through opening our minds and freeing them from learned
shapes/looks, allowing the body and the mind to take time, to be
patient, but also to be pushed and activated.

- developing sensibility and perception: finding a level of
self-awareness and vulnerability which exposes us to ourselves and
increases confidence in ourselves, and then in others.

- finding self-respect and self-love: experiencing our values, our
daily achieve- ments and how it affects our daily work, our creativity
and social/political input.

- finding intimacy with ourselves as the most creative and imaginative
moment in our existence: getting ready to share our own intimacy with
the others within the working group/community.

The final and most crucial goal is to learn the importance of our
body-mind in performance; to understand it as the basic source for
creation and communication.

Organic Synesthetic technique.

-La tŽcnica COS es el resultado de varios a–os de estudio y experiencia

importˆncia del nostre cos-ment dins del performance, com a font bˆsica
de creaci— i comunicaci—:
-trobant les nostres forces internes i externes aprenent a escoltar el
nostre cos, creient en ell per saber quan hem de reaccionar i quan
simplemente hem dâobservar-lo per
produ•r-les, augmentar-les i compartir-les.
-aprenent a despertar la nostra mem˜ria corporal, -concients del
moviment constant del cos a travŽs del contacte amb els ˜rgans interns
i les seves funcions, explorant
les activitats corporals mitjanant experincies f’siques- per saber
quan Žs necessari tenir pacincia o ser actius amb el nostre cos-ment.
