“Through living with unilateral hearing loss, I have become aware of how sensitive we are to resonance – the way that our bodies are touched and moved by resonance generated in shared space. In classes this week, I propose exploring being-with as dancers by attuning to resonance as we dance with others as part of a temporary community; sensing, moving and resting together even as we follow our own desires and curiosity; noticing relations that arise, establish and pass in proximity and distance; witnessing, and being witnessed; tapping into undercurrents that move us – the questions and conversations that we bring to dancing; sensing what matters today, or in this moment, as our visceral, sensitive, sensual, dreaming, thinking bodies move.

Explorations will be based on propositions – usually word-based scores for improvisation that also draw on somatic practices such as Skinner Releasing Technique, Body Weather, Experiential Anatomy and Authentic Movement. Participants are invited to bring their practice/interests into conversation with the proposals that I offer – there will be time for drawing, writing and reflection too. My intention is that this should be an inclusive space for dancers and non-dancers. Please check in with ID and with me at the beginning of class regarding any specific needs or adaptations.”



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.
