Gabrielle Revlock [USA] | 5th August
In this workshop we will explore how touch and weigh-sharing and can be used to create spontaneous compositions. Participants will be asked to work with both open and closed eyes as we tune our ability to listen and see through our skin, muscle and bones. Guidance and scores will be introduced around what it means to be fully present in your own dance, your personal desires and needs, while respecting your partners and the group as a whole. Bring your curiosity, compassion and the desire to play. Open to beginner and experienced practitioners alike.
