Miranda Tufnell

Miranda Tufnell is a dance artist, writer and teacher in movement and imagination. She is also an Alexander teacher and cranio-sacral therapist. She has been teaching and making performances for over 35 years. Her work, both as a performer and body therapist has been to explore the ways in which movement shapes our sense of meaning, language and perception. With Chris Crickmay she co-authored two handbooks on sourcing creative work entitled Body Space Image (1990) and A Widening Field (2004).  She has worked extensively in the field of arts and health including part time (14 years) within the NHS for a GP surgery.  Her most recent book, When I Open My Eyes – dance health imagination (2017), documents this work. She has continued to teach widely (including the one-time Dartington College of Arts) and was visiting tutor at  UCLAN on their MA in Dance and Somatic Wellbeing. Now based in rural Northumberland, she continues to offer mentoring and one-to-one creative space retreats.(www.mirandatufnell.co.uk
