Drawing on her background in aerial circus, acrobatic and somatic practices, this dance workshop invites participants to journey through set and improvised material, through contact with bodies (with consent from all participants) and other surfaces.
Julie will share some foundational principles for touch, support, and transitional movement from her company, AcroYoga Collective. Participants are invited to explore these pillars into more expansive and travelling movement.
Throughout, there will be time for gathering and sharing experiences, and Julie will offer some lenses for viewing dance, which she developed during research and residencies at Space Clarence Mews during lockdowns.
Julie is a Danish Independent Dance Artist based in Hove. Since graduating with first class BA and MA in Dance Studies, her work has travelled to Scandinavia and Italy, across performance, facilitation, choreography and dramaturgy.She co-founded and ran the research collective, Inter Pares Project 2013-2017, and currently runs the company AcroYoga Collective which explores the play between practices from acrobatics, yoga asanas and contemporary dance. Julie has choreographed her own work, largely supported by Space Clarence Mews, as well as for video work and higher education, and performed in works by companies such as Tempered Body Dance Theatre, Seven Sisters Group and Theatre Libre.
Her work is predominantly task-based and underpinned by a non-narrative, curious approach to attentiveness and presence in dancing.
She is also a mother, yoga teacher and activist within the industry – all of which influences her dance work.
