In the role of facilitator, SERAFINE1369 is concerned with opening up embodied channels of connection and flow. In the sessions, they will share practices to support accessing and utilising body/sensing/emotion as oracular resource.

Classes will involve working with movement and dance as tools for listening to and witnessing without judgement, feeling towards and unsettling edges through tuning into the detail and murmurings of the sensing capacities of bodies.

All sessions are tuned to meet the feeling(s) in the room each day. The work is centred around individual practice, improvised movement, cultivating and refining awareness of the ways that we are entangled and always in relation, so that we stay open to influence and also move with agency. Sessions may involve speaking, physical contact with others and writing.

Florence Peake will lead Friday’s class. Drawing on somatic dance practices including Skinner Releasing Technique, touch based movement explorations and Florence Peake’s visual art background, these classes guide participants through perceptions of the body. They encourage working with the imagination as a powerful resource for multiple realties/physicalities existing at once between flesh, between states, between species.  These classes incorporate writing, drawing, voice, and movement.

Cancellations and refunds
Prices for classes are kept very low and are subsidised 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.
