How does Dance Improvisation Practice affect our lives and choices?

There is deep inspiration and rigour 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.
