Preparation for the Walk in Tai Chi, A

Synopsis
Videotaped source material for research purposes: this video records Eva Karczag’s detailed anatomical understanding of the body which she uses as a preparation for t’ai chi. Karczag is a dancer and an Alexander and t’ai chi teacher whose first t’ai chi teacher was Gerda Geddes. The final part documents Karczag doing the t’ai chi long form, while Gerda Geddes is heard talking about her life in China in a previously unpublished recording made 30 years ago.
