The first Monday Night Improv of the year will be led by Kathy Crick. This class invites curiosity to support sensing and connection to our moving bodies and imaginations. Suggestions for frames of attention are intended to awaken different energetic states, compositional awareness, and appetite for moving for ourselves and with others.
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.
Kathy Crick teaches Improvisation, Contact Improvisation, Choreography and Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, London. She is interested in improvisation as an integrated technical, compositional and performance practice, considering the layers of play between structure and spontaneity. Whilst studying Theatre, she encountered Release Dance with Mary Fulkerson and Contact Improvisation with Steve Paxton and Mary Prestidge – experiences that have continued to inform her practice.
Over a period of thirty-five years, she has worked as a performer, collaborator and teacher with artists from the fields of dance, theatre, music and moving image. Kathy has contributed to many Dance and Performing Arts programmes in Higher Education in the UK and in independent community settings. Other influences include studies in education, psychology, shiatsu, anatomy and an MA in Dance and Somatic Well Being (University of Central Lancashire).
