MONDAY EVENINGS (4, 11, 18, 25 May 2020)
This session is a 1h taught class which aims at bringing us back in touch with our dancing and explorative body, and at learning new skills. It combines learning patterns or principles which help us making space in the body, having agency in our movement choices, as well engaging with open-ended tasks or puzzles which open up our improvisational body and mind and our realm of possibilities. It is recommended to have a 1.8/2m x 2m space to move available, but not necessary. I also include your homely environment, and adaptations to space and to your individual body and its condition.
In this lightly guided session, which features a live musician every two weeks, you are invited to find your dancing body and relate to others through movement, the intermediate of our screens, and a bit of imagination. Proposing frameworks through which reading our movement and letting a collective feeling emerge, the session usually ends with a short structure which gives us a chance to witness and appreciate each other's presence, dance or experience.
Payment for these sessions is on a sliding scale (suggested £3-£9 according to your means and the number of sessions you join on the day) to be made on:

Is it possible to find comfort/interest in 'doing' and 'paying attention to what we are doing'?
Using elements of somatic work and imagery, the class will guide us towards a place where we can experiment and get surprised. Motivated by our own desire for movement and supported by the presence of others, that despite the distance, are dancing with us.
