These classes play with ongoing interests I have in how perception, imagination, physiology and physics are in a constant interplay in human movement. We’ll work with images and exercises that shift the ways in which we experience movement.

The classes are a combination of practical exercises and improvisational scores. Working individually, with a partner or partners, and as a group, we quickly build a shared body of information which cultivates an easy interplay between each other and the space we work in.

This work fosters a readiness and availability in the body to the different layers of possibility that arise as we move. Deep listening is encouraged as a means of tapping into what’s there – in our bodies, in the environment and in our interactions with others.

These classes are a place for curiosity and discovery, and for engaged and embodied action – come and get involved.
