Class will be a practice of giving permission to notice, follow, listen to. Particularly highlighting the use of weight, breath, grounding to find space, images, drawing attention to and taking attention away. It will mostly include improvisation, floor work, functional movement and release technique. Sometimes using partner work and set material to aid our solo movement practice.
My class with focus on weight, momentum, finding myself solo within a group, my own research in Trust Practice. Trust Practice includes tools I used to find a ready body which is a constantly adapting. To be able to receive information in the moment, from myself, from people around and the space I was in to allow that to be watched and experienced. The tools to find myself in and out of being in charge of this.
I hope to invite everyone to play, explore, challenge, take what they need and be generous with others to do the same.
