Responding to what is present in the moment; we can draw out imaginative landscapes which are grounded in the details of the body. Through the simultaneous mapping of our interior landscapes in connection with the exterior space, Jessica Lerner invites you to conjure up emotive scenarios and play out surreal connections.
Focusing on exploring what is present in your body, with a caring, self-supporting and inquisitive stance, we will explore ideas around allowing the dancing to come effortlessly through trusting your bodies’ imagination. We will find intrinsic musicality coming from dream-like states or alternative layering of being with our mind/body, working sometimes without external music.
Jessica Lerner is a visual and movement artist. Originally from London, she has been living in Carmarthenshire, Wales since 2002, where she now has a movement studio.
Her practice focuses on natural choreography, the body and self, drawing and somatic movement. Her pieces can be described as autobiographical improvisations where movement is in conversation with objects, images and location. She has been making and showing work since 1989 within experimental dance venues and galleries.
Jessica has collaborated with film, dance and sound artists. Her work is live performance, installation, film, performance-photography and painting, using movement as a sculptural material which acknowledges her identity and sense of embodied imagination as a woman.
