The Embodiology® Method

Embodiology® is the outcome of examining ancestral and indigenous knowledge, originating from a study of improvisation within traditional West African performance practices. Centering this practice of African origin displaces normative dance hierarchies that have largely ignored somatic practices that combine movement, music, and song at their point of origin. As a result, a new optimizing body/mind dexterity has been uncovered and 2021 sees the launch of the Embodiology Teacher Training program. This is enabling the impact of this timely practice to expand, with definite intellectual attribution directed to the artists and community members of Kopeyia Village, Ghana. Embodiology® effectively enables trained dancers and people with little to no dance experience to dynamically inhabit the same space creatively, without prescribed notions of inadequacy or superiority. The result of action research, Dr. Wray's seeks to return tangible benefit to the community, restoratively contributing to the paradigm of research justice in relation to African practices, moreover indigenous peoples worldwide.
