This workshop will discover the knowledge we hold in our bodies and how movement/dance can be a playful and profound way to express the landscapes both within and outside. There will be time for a movement warm-up, skills to create dance with voice and the poetic and how to pragmatically listen to the body as a source for creation. Opening up the possibilities of dancing in place, whether it is site-specific in the natural world, in the kitchen, or in a park will be explored as a way to create movement in place. There will be time for the pragmatics of what it means to film ourselves even with just your phone, and dance like no one is watching, and yet be conscious of creating a one-minute video.
This workshop is for anyone, with our without dance/movement experience and yearns to deepen and grown their expressivity.
