Monday Night Improv : Kate Brown

A barefoot figure in blue trousers and top against the brown wood of the rooftop studio. Torso bent forwards over legs, looking down, arms around her head with open palms, and a flexed right foot almost like a folk dance caught mid-step.

The class will investigate improvising as a way to expand and excite our dancing. We will begin working with information we receive from the external environment and circumstance and from our internal sensations, to prepare and warm up our senses and bodies.  The class will not prescribe a particular movement style or practice but draw from our imaginations and use sharing and copying as a creative tool.

We will use writing and speaking as further tools to comment, describe, imagine and see. We will then experiment with how improvisation can be used in performance, working with simple structures in time and space and allowing an opportunity to watch each other.

A chance to enjoy dancing alone and with others, in a space for thoughtful appreciation and fun – all welcome!



Cancellations & refunds
Prices for classes are kept very low and are subsidized by ID in order to support artists to attend. To keep adminmanageable 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.
