Monday Night Improv: Kat Hawkins

Kat is in a grey brick dance studio, with a ballet barre running along the wall. Kat is a white human with a dark brown mullet. They are captured in a position of precarity and balance, with their head leaning down. They are a double leg amputee and are wearing two black carbon fibre prosthetic legs with beige feet. Both arms and hands are stretched out, and their left leg is off the floor and raised at a right angle. Despite this their face is very calm.

“Oscillating somewhere in the middle of where we have been and where we will be, the only central component of this class is that there isn’t one, and yet magically things will emerge, a jumble of matter somehow organising itself. And always centring the Disabled/Crip experience, through learnings gleaned from Disability Justice thinkers.

Music helps – of which there will be plenty!

Working with ideas of deconstruction and destruction, this class will nod to dance’s philosophical underpinnings, urging us to use our nightmares and dreams, our ‘bodies without organs’ (Deleuze) for political organisations and activities, and using movement and energy (expenditure and resourcing) as a way of getting us there.

Praying and yearning for something between an AI simulation rave, and a hobbit-style setting of the salon.

Open to everyone, as long as you are kind, with a particular hope for the presence of those who find themselves on the margins of this neoliberal hellscape/nightmare.”  – Kat Hawkins

Cancellations and refunds
Prices for classes are kept very low and are subsidised by ID in order to support artists to attend. To keep admin manageable for our small team, we don’t offer refunds if you cancel or can’t attend a class, and we can’t transfer your booking to a different class/event. We hope this is understandable. If a class is cancelled or changed by ID however, we do offer refunds/transfers to everyone who has booked.
