The class will consist of open explorations using improvisation as well as set material. Sung Im Her’s movement practice strongly emphasizes weight and gravity using the breath as a source of movement and the floor as a partnership to aid the transference, shift and momentum of weight with an ease of connection through the limbs.
Sung Im sees class as a time to share and seek playfulness and openness through our bodies as communication tools. The classes also involve working in pairs with touch, resistance and dialogue to give feedback into the body and offer different choices of response.
For safety, we would like to encourage everyone to take a Covid-19 lateral flow test before attending. The studio will also be well-ventilated even in colder weather – please bring extra layers for warmth. Siobhan Davies Studios current risk assessment and policy is available to read here.
