About this workshop:

In this time of living in confined spaces, the freedom we experience as dancers can feel constrained by the walls that surround us. It’s almost as if our skin and our minds begin to hold us more tightly. This brings up the question of how to thrive in a smaller than usual physical world. Yet this constraint can provide us with the opportunity to investigate, in depth and detail, the infinite possibilities of movement inherent in us at all times.

In this workshop, we will begin by searching beneath layers of stillness to observe the tiniest movements we can only sense when we become very quiet. We will take time, lingering within the experience of this internal movement, since it is the foundation for all movement.

Over the course of the five days, we will move from inner space to outer context. As we explore our personal environments and engage anew with the architecture and objects that surround us, we will generate novel movement maps and fresh histories in our lived spaces to discover inspiration that lies beyond the known. The precision, articulateness and idiosyncratic details of our inner moving will color our dancing as it becomes easy, expansive and liberated.
