About the Workshop:
This workshop is designed to reflect on how we move into presence, action and support. The day will be divided into two halves; the first half will include a group warm up and the second half will be movement improvisations in small groups. The warm up will include improvised movement pathways that are designed to physically warm up, encourage reflection and engage the imagination. The movement improvisations will be a chance for participants to respond physically to a movement score as well as observe fellow participants. This second half of the day will include group discussions and reflections.
This workshop is open to anyone interested in exploring movement as an expressive and reflective medium. The day will move cautiously into working in a shared space together and any partnering (ie: physically touching) will be at the discretion of each participant.
There will be lunch provided in between the first and second part of the day. In registering for the workshop, please indicate any dietary restrictions and/or access needs that you have.
