Dancing the body as an instrument of perception, intuition and action. Deepening awareness and understanding of your physical instrument by investigating states of embodiment and the act of motion through a hybrid of traditional, contemporary and alternative forms. Experimenting with the many bodies we inhabit – anatomical, elemental, emotional, artistic, political, animal, magical, mundane and more. Exploring articulation and agency, form and function, materiality and imagination while practicing intuition, following impulses, releasing inhibitions and trusting instincts. Working with energy cultivation, touch and manipulation, technical modalities, somatic and Contact Improvisation, choreography, scores and creative processes to encourage sensate virtuosity, interactive intelligence, personal presence and performative practice.
