In this workshop we explore dancing between self and others, listening and responding to each other, and opening to what emerges in the moment.
Tapping into ours body’s capacity for creativity and awareness, we’ll use improvisational forms and open our sense of play. Movement practices from the Life/Art Process and Anna Halprin’s work invite us to let go into the ﬂow of movement and connect to ourselves and to each other. Tending to the space with care and curiosity, we’ll explore emerging collaborations in small/ large group settings. In the process we allow ourselves to be moved by another person’s dance and expand ourselves. We discover connections, new ways of seeing and being seen in the virtual space.
Please have a comfortable space to move and have drawing and writing materials on hand.
