Adam Moore’s class will guide dancers through a series of improvisational prompts and suggestions to help design a space for dancing together and separately as a group. Collectively articulating what a nourishing space for dancing might be, class will focus on building and maintaining a healthy pace for experiencing spontaneous and joyous movement. Prompts/suggestions will accumulate to facilitate dancing from an open and imaginative state that expresses the subtle and vast nature of dancing. Dancers are encouraged to explore their own interests within their dancing, following their intuition and imagination, and allowing their appetites to develop that satisfy their needs for all kinds of moving. Class will involve the use of imagery and guided hands-on work bringing awareness to structures in the body.
Adam Moore is a transdisciplinary artist who dances and works with dance. Creating nourishing conditions for dancing, designing spaces and building performance installations, he applies choreographic, embodied and sociopolitical processes for dance making to his works in ceramics, drawing, film, painting, sculpture, sound and text. Dancing with people, life forms, materials and structures in the places he lives and the spaces he moves through, he heals open the closures between fragmented dimensions of reality touching us and our world deeply. Synthesising material, sensory and spiritual dimensions of the self with the world and with others, he examines new and different ways of perceiving, doing, and being in the world that soften hardened institutions, stewarding life to thrive.
