Grounded in somatic and listening practices, these sessions will consist of playful guided movement improvisations, in solo and group constellations. Concoctions of images, questions, propositions, will ignite our dancing and become our surfboards to ride the tidal waves of our attentions, intentions, desires, needs. We will tune into what~who we might be and be with each day, nurturing sensitivity and curiosity towards the multiple shifting fields of our own bodies and of those~that we encounter.
We will move, voice, mark, make~draw, write, welcoming the magic that happens to us and to our experiential findings as we translate and weave them across our senses and across different languages.
This class will take place in the Research Studio.
Cancellations & refunds
Prices for classes are kept very low and are subsidized by ID in order to support artists to attend. To keep adminmanageable 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.
