Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord – Peter Brook Workshop Collection

The eight ATM lessons in this collection were taught by Moshe Feldenkrais in French, in 1978 to the actors of the Bouffes du Nord theatre (Paris) at the behest of their director Peter Brook. The tapes were recorded by Myriam Pfeffer on a small hand-held machine and have been made available from the archives by Sabine Pfeffer and François Combeau. They edited these materials and gave them to the French practitioners on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the French Feldenkrais Association in March 2017. This source material, in French, and the translations below (PDF downloads) are being made available to all Feldenkrais practitioners, be they members of Feldenkrais Associations and Guilds or not.

The title of the lessons has been given by the editors. The lesson order does not strictly match the chronological order in which Moshe Feldenkrais taught them.
