This improvisation class is informed by the Laban/Bartenieff Movement System (LBMS), presented through a playful approach to the various concepts it offers for perceiving and embodying movement. Fundamental concepts are explored, interwoven and layered to build awareness of self, other and environment.

Developing skills of attunement and responsivity through process-oriented tasks, the class opens awareness of breath, weight and flow as foundational to exploring personal space, and how use of space communicates with and to others. Alexandra leads a class that is thoughtful and attentive to togetherness in difference. Those wishing to deepen their understanding of LBMS are welcome, as are those who are new to the concept of the ‘kinesphere’.

For safety, we would like to encourage everyone to take a Covid-19 lateral flow test before attending. The studio will also be well-ventilated even in colder weather – please bring extra layers for warmth. Siobhan Davies Studios current risk assessment and policy is available to read here.
