There is deep inspiration and rigor in a practice of improvisation that posits
vulnerability at its heart. Developing the skills to be able to care for, engage, respect
and respond to that state of vulnerability in oneself and others gives life to
improvisation that is powerful and transformative.

These guiding principles and questions have informed Kirstie’s art/life practice
since she began exploring dance improvisation over three decades ago.
This is the work that Kirstie engenders through facilitated exercises, open time for
play and exploration, movement scores, observations and discussion. Much of the
work is experienced through partnering and connection with others, balanced with
solo time for processing and reflection.

In this workshop Kirstie shares insights gleaned from thirty-two years experience of
living and loving Dance Improvisation, with a specific focus on how dance
improvisation affects our lives and choices.
