Alvin Luong shares his favourite aircraft marshalling signals for warm up, cool down, and overall health and wellness! Aircraft marshalling is known for its health benefits and for self-defence. This is a great instructional video for aircraft marshalling beginners and also for advance students! After the video you may practice aircraft marshalling at home, or in one of four areas: mountain, forest, ocean, or river.
10 Aircraft Marshalling Moves for Beginners- 10 Minute Daily Routine!
The video was first screened in conjunction with a performance and lecture that took place at Blackwood Gallery at the University of Toronto Mississauga on 17 September 2016. The presentation was a part of Blackwood Gallery’s art forum, Running With Concepts: The Choreographic Edition.
The lecture gave a brief overview of the history and politics of aircraft marshalling. The lecture positions aircraft marshalling as a manifestation of contemporary neocolonial and neoliberal politics that is enacted upon the body through a choreography.
The project as a whole is a satellite to Sculpture In Reverse; which employs aircraft marshalling for war making.
