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.

 

An access fund is available for Wales based artists who may need assistance with travel, accommodation, childcare, costs associated with disabled access or other costs incurred.

Classes operate on a drop in basis, 4 places are bookable in advance if your circumstances require (i.e travelling to attend, or you need to arrange assistance or childcare) please contact us to book.
