This class, occurring on the full moon as we tip towards winter, will propose scores flowing between work individually, with partners and in groups to re-examine our bodies as dynamic, transformative environments, ever-shifting in their internal and external states. We work with our direct senses, imagery, and varied interventions to play, reflect, lead, follow, dialogue and exchange in improvisation.
All are welcome and no prior experience in dance or improvisation is necessary.
Cancellations & refunds
Prices for classes are kept very low and are subsidized 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.
