Where does imagery and imagination arise from? We will explore poetic imagery of the present moment using our senses as a tool to navigate and opening possibilities of finding new dimensions and pressures of space and time.
Drawing from Rosalie Wahlfrid’s own practice of improvisation, somatics and aikido, the class will journey through explorations, working on our own, with a partner and as part of a group. Through moving, listening and speaking we will practice our immediate experience of imagery, imagination, wakefulness and presence. The class is open to anyone interested in movement and practice-led work, some previous experience of movement is useful but not essential.
