Kip is a dancer, maker, performer, and environmental activist. After a week of camping in London as part of Extinction Rebellion’s Climate protest in April. He began to wonder what role the body plays in activism? Can it become a resource to be called upon in these urgent and fragile times?

What does it take to show up actively for what we believe in? What does an activated and urgent body look like? Can we afford to be passive anymore? How can the body contribute and be valued in engaging people in the crisis that is Climate Change? How are we receiving shifting climate awareness and how is that absorbed by the body?

Through conversation and movement exploration, the workshop will offer a space to drop down and connect into the body, to be with and listen to feelings of anger, grief and sadness around climate breakdown.
To find tools to access the body as a vital resource in allowing us to find a place of active hope and engagement in an issue that is calling on us all to rise up.

Please note this workshop replaces Hagit Yakira’s Response, movement, emotion workshop.
