Carolyn Roy

Morning Class | 20-24 March 2017 | 10am - 12 noon
Current concerns are exploring conditions for composing and recomposing space through practices of listening, touch, attending to curiosity, stillness, dancing in partnership with others, observing ourselves, others and the space we co-create, somatic and kinaesthetic awareness. Both morning class and Monday night improvisation sessions are conceived as spaces for research and experiment with the hope that participants use them to explore or expand their own practice through a different lens. Please bring notebooks for drawing and writing, feel free to speculate, ask questions and dance.


Carolyn Roy is a London based dancer, writer and teacher. Her work examines the body meeting with the world through improvising and walking, the material that emerges in this encounter and the compositional potential of somatic practice. It is concerned with attention, perception, and relationships. Formative influences of Skinner Releasing Technique and Body Weather continue to inform this practice. In addition to her own projects, she has performed with Gaby Agis, Pacitti Company, Tino Sehgal, Florence Peake, and Lizzy Lequesne, and is currently a PhD practitioner researcher at Roehampton University.
