Andrea Buckley

Class Description | Morning class | 1 - 5 October 2018 | Monday Night Improvisation | 1 October

This class aims to look within the landscape of our bodies to access a starting point to move from. We will work with the sense of touch as a way to awaken our sense mechanism and through guided instructions, both anatomical and compositional, we will explore dynamic states of awareness and readiness in the body in order to enhance perception of ourselves and others in relation to the surrounding space.
