Monday Night Improv : Alexandra Baybutt

This class is informed by Alexandra Baybutt’s varied creative practice and her rich training in and teaching of Bartenieff Fundamentals and Laban’s Space Harmony. Improvisation and guided tasks build to experience our inner and outer connectivity, together and apart.

Alexandra takes a playful approach to Laban’s movement scales, and shares ones rarely found outside of specialist Laban training programmes. The fundamental tools from Laban/Bartenieff Movement System offer ways to consider already existing patterns of movement and develop new ones. Alexandra’s interest in the Laban/Bartenieff Movement System continues through exploring what various concepts can mean through somatic inquiry and how they layer into improvisation structures. This class is less a museum of Laban concepts and history, and more a laboratory exploring their relevance for sensation, observation and creative practice.
